Thierry Henry has thanked the Barça fans for all the support they have shown him, especially after scoring his first official goal for the club against Olympique Lyon.

FC Barcelona striker Thierry Henry has explained how he feels after scoring his first official goal for Barça. Speaking at a promotional event in the Poble Espanyol along with Real Madrid keeper, Iker Casillas, Henry recognised the importance of scoring against Lyon. ”It felt great although what was really important was the fact the team won” he said. “I am very happy to have scored at the Camp Nou in front of our fans. After trying in so many other games, I scored at last.”

Praise for the fans

The truth is, I like the Barça supporters a lot.” The supporters are aware that he put in an awful lot of effort since joining the club, and Henry claims “I have always given it one hundred per cent in all matches. I have always played that way.”

Messi and Ronaldinho

He is still one of the best players in the world, if not the best.” But Messi was his man of the match against Lyon. “Messi carried the team in attack although the most important thing is not who plays best but that the team plays well as a whole and wins matches.”

Arsenal fan
Henry has not forgotten his Arsenal past, and is keeping a close eye on the form of Arsène Wenger’s team, who also started their Champions League campaign with a 3-0 win, in their case against Sevilla. “Arsenal are playing good football” he said. “It is nice to see them play with such fighting spirit. They’ll surely be one of the best teams this season. I am still a big fan of Arsenal.”
