New York Red Bulls striker Thierry Henry is all set to miss the next 3 to 4 weeks after suffering a hamstring injury while playing for the club in the 1-0 win over New England Revolution.
Thierry Henry is one of the best players at the club, and it is something that the club will struggle to replace over the upcoming games. Thierry Henry has played for some of the best clubs in the world including Arsenal and Barcelona.
The Frenchman has been playing for New York Red Bulls just over a year now. Unlike David Beckham, New York Red Bulls have really benefited from Thierry Henry’s presence in the team.
New York Red Bulls striker Thierry Henry currently leads the table for the top goal scorer this season with nine goals to his credit. Even though the club have not been able to take advantage of the goals from the former Barcelona striker, they are at least doing well in the third position.
Sporting KC continue to lead the table at the top with 21 points on board in the Eastern Conference, while New York Red Bulls have only 13 points on the board. However, with a string of performances, the club remain confident that they can get into second position ahead of DC United.
“His injury is disastrous for us. His leadership in every single training session is invaluable. It’s a huge loss for us, both on and off the pitch. It’s going to be difficult now without him,” Red Bulls coach Hans Backe told reporters after the news of the hamstring injury. “I have never been involved, in 30 years, with a team picking up five, six, seven injuries from starters, so it’s very tricky. We will have probably three or four more games – very rough ones – until some players are coming back,” said assistant Backe.
