Ex-Arsenal hero excited about Euro semi with Manchester United

But will it end in tears for Thierry Henry? The Frenchman joined Barcelona in order to further his career, yet the formidable might of Manchester United stand in his and Barcelona’s way. Sky Sports report that the former Arsenal striker is salivating at the prospect of going head-to-head with the likes of Rooney, Ronaldo and Tevez, although he’s not sure that the Red Devils should be favourites.

“This is a game to get excited about, but we will have to play well because we will be up against a team who are playing incredibly. They are on great form,” he said. “People will say they are favourites but nobody can really know.

“They are a team in first place in their league and Cristiano Ronaldo is having an incredible season, so we know them pretty well. They won’t be able to surprise us.”

Who is your bet to be playing Chelsea or Liverpool in the final? This Barcelona team might have plenty of star names but they’re having a mediocre season domestically (by their usual standards) and Manchester United have the added advantage of playing the second leg of the semi-final at Old Trafford. It’s safe to say that Rooney and Ronaldo won’t be rested for that one.
