New York seal Henry deal

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.
