Henry passes medical


Thierry Henry has successfully completed his medical at the Camp Nou today.

According to first team doctor Ricard Pruna: “He passed all the medical tests satisfactorily this morning. The analysis is correct as is the cardiac test. We have also carried out tests on his locomotive apparatus as well as ultrasound scans on his tendons and muscles. In short, there are no problems. Everything is in order. Henry doesn’t have any injuries or any after-effects that could affect his incorporation into the discipline of the team”.

Special work plan

We have catalogued it as an unbalance of all the muscle groups that arrive in the area. We have agreed an exhaustive work plan with him to restore the balance, which the player will carry out in Paris”. Club doctors will remain in constant contact with Henry to ensure he is able to report for training as planned on 21st July.

“In principal, as we have seen him today, and as long as the work is exhaustive and with the continuity that we will carry out in the club, when he rejoins [the squad] there shouldn’t be any problems”.

A morning full of medical tests
