THIERRY HENRY’S move to the New York Red Bulls will help Major League Soccer in its goal to become one of the “world’s elite soccer leagues”, according to vice-president of marketing and communications, Dan Courtemanche.
The French striker penned a multi-year contract with the club after months of speculation.
Henry is the League’s biggest signing since David Beckham’s arrival at the LA Galaxy in 2007 and MLS is expecting a similar boon in interest and income.
“Thierry Henry is a global icon who has had success at all levels of soccer, whether it is with his club or winning the World Cup for his country,” remarked Courtemanche.
