Interviewed by news agency Europa Press, Thierry Henry wanted to put an end to recent criticisms about his fitness and his eye for goal by sarcastically saying, “It is true that I went without scoring for a long time, but I sometimes read that it was for six months. I didn’t know you can score goals while on holiday or injured. It’s unbelievable”.
Henry said even though he was pleased with his goal, he stressed that what really matters is the team: “I really wanted to score to help my team. It is hard when you’re out injured and not being able to do it, watching your teammates play and not being able to participate. I still have to regain my form though and when I do get to play again, I want to score more goals”.
