Synopsis :

He is the greatest striker in the game. Thierry Henry is the enigmatic multimillionaire Frenchman who has put the va-va-voom into the Premiership.

Adored by fans of Arsenal and France worldwide, he has twice been voted Player and Footballer of the Year. But this living legend started his career with a pair of borrowed boots and endured a hazardous journey from Guadeloupe to France, whose national side he would join.

He stayed focussed on the ball and rose through the French ranks to be spotted by Arsene Wenger. At Arsenal, the pair re-established the north Londoners as giants. A World Cup and European Championship winner, Henry has his formidable sights set on the Champions League.

He is a modern-day superstar. In this revealing biography, Ollie Derbyshire speaks to Henry's family, friends and team-mates and reveals for the first time the full story of a footballer destined to be ranked alongside giants such as Pele and Maradona.


Our verdict :

A great book about one of the best strikers this planet has ever seen. The book shows that Thierry is still the same as the little boy from Paris. His periods in Paris, Monaco, Turin and London are described in this book and if you forgot how Thierry looks like with dreadlocks than it's nice to see some of the old photo's which are included.
