Could Henry really play for France again?
One of football’s greatest ever players, Zinedine Zidane, reckons Thierry Henry should be given a final appearance for the French national team after finishing his contract with New York Red Bulls, reports the Mirror.
Henry recently announced that he’s leaving the MLS side, but has not yet announced whether he’ll sign for somebody else or retire from professional football.
The striker is regarded as one of the very best of his generation, having bagged 411 goals in 917 matches, over half of which came for Arsenal during his wonderful peak years.
As a result, Zidane, now the manager of Real Madrid’s 2nd team Castilla, reckons his former international teammate should be rewarded for his services to the French with a runout in a friendly match.
“For everything he has brought to French football, it would be a great moment for him,” said the two-time Ballon d’Or winner.
“And the opponents would bring him back some good memories.”
France take on Brazil in March, the same team France beat 16 years ago in the World Cup final in Paris.
