Thierry Henry's Showdown in Chinatown

Thierry Henry's Showdown in Chinatown

French soccer/football player Thierry Henry plays at the Steve Nash ‘Showdown In Chinatown’ Charity Soccer Match in New York City’s Sara Delano Roosevelt Park on Wednesday.

NBA stars Jason Kidd, Raja Bell, Leandro Barbosa, and Baron Davis were also there to play and support the charity event.

When asked about if he would consider playing in the MLS, Henry said, “Why not? I love America. I love it here. And, whenever I come here, I feel free. Hopefully, one day.

“You never know what’s going to happen. But, at the moment, I’m still over there.”

DO YOU WANT Thierry Henry to play in America?

    OMG! I wonder how long he’s staying in NY? Wait for me, Thierry. I’ll be there tomorrow! LOL.

  • just another french girl

    He plays in the spanish championship, in the FC Barcelona team, and lately he hasn’t been so good. Rumors say he is really sad and deeply depressed because he barely sees his daughter since his divorce (people say his british ex-wife keeps the little girl away from him…)

  • Zenith

    He’s a FAR BETTER soccer player than Beckham, much more respected among his peers. The bonus: he’s less annoying than David and doesn’t have the fame-digging, useless wife.

  • duyen

    LOVE HIM!!

  • parisgirl

    Yeah he’s cute but he annoys the hell outta me
    #2, parle pour toi lol

  • C

    I think Henry’s best years of footballing are behind him but he would be a good fit for MLS. I’d also love to see more soccer players on the site!

  • mariya

    I find it amazing how America is ignorant of the rest of the world.
    I mean, Thierry Henry is a global superstar, and we only know him from the gillete commericals. It would be awesome if he came here to the mls.

  • cb

    I love Henry, and given the racism he faces over in Europe, I would love to see him come over to the U.S. On the other hand, MLS SUCKS! David Beckham notwithstanding.

  • Anna

    OMG Jared you ROCK! I love Thierry Henry! He is an amazing player and man! I love you JJ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • ninie

    OMG thierry henry is one of the best player in the world, like Zinedine Zidane (even if zizou is better). But I don’t want to see Henry becoming like Beckam, he really deserves better.
    Thank Jared to talk about him.

  • cheddar

    Wow he is gorgeous!!! I’ll have to see if I can find out more about him. I’m loving the sports threads!!!! :)

  • Lulu

    I can’t believe some people compare Henry and Beckham (a striker and a winger).
    Do any of you know something about soccer?

  • ioooooon

    Woooh titi sur Just Jared ! J’l'adore, il est trop HOT

    Thanks Just Jared, continue de mettre des news sur des p’tits Frenchies !

  • jrfan

    I nearly cried when I saw that Becks was coming to America because I thought it was the end of his international career. Thankfully, he got his 100th cap, but no telling if he’ll be able to join the squad in WC 2010. I still thought he had a couple more good years of European soccer left in him, but perhaps the slower pace of the MLS has helped extend his club career, at least.

    Maybe the same could be said for Henry and he should come to MLS. But, I wouldn’t want him to come until he can’t really perform in Europe. What’s so funny is that even though the MLS is becoming a retirement league for European players, they’re still some of the top players in MLS. lol

  • MARY

    love henry.

  • COmeback 3t?

  • jkong07

    i’ll take thierry henry over cristiano ronaldo anyday.

  • mike

    Thierry Henry is the best. A giant among the football players. A great gunner at Arsenal. We miss him there.
    I don’t want him to play in the US though, to make some money in the end, yes, but as good as he still is he should play ina very strong league, like in Spain or Italy, not the US.

  • Charlotte (french)

    French soccer? On Justjared? :)
    Et en plus c’est mon Titi Henry : mon joueur, celui que j’admire depuis tellement longtemps maintenant. Il est tout simplement pour moi, le meilleur joueur au monde. ♥
    Thanks JJ, really !

  • oh no

    somone loves football :)

  • rae

    He is so hot! I love him. I would be sad if he came to MLS. MLS is such a letdown compared to Euro Soccer.

  • DANGASindahaus

    Woooooooooooh! THIERRY HENRY!!!!!! Those who love football and hate Becks, you should be thanking Beckham! It’s evident that only the football/soccer mad know of the likes of Thierry and C. Ronaldo. It’s a good thing that they’re starting to get recognized in the US. Hmmm, I wonder who made that happen?

  • Sam

    How ome ive posted twice yesterday and none of the comment showed up???

  • Coralie

    He’s got to stay in EUROPE, we’ve got real soccer/football there.
    BTW I’m French.

  • Sarah

    No he’s should stay in Europe for a couple of years and then go to America. But he is very good so it would be good for America if he went and soccer would probaly get more attention!
