Henry started playing football at the age of six
PARIS Nike Air Max 360 UK , Dec. 16 (Xinhua) -- French legendary striker Thierry Henry announced to hang his boots through a statement on his facebook page on Tuesday.

""After 20 years in the game I have decided to retire from professional football,"" Henry said.

The 37-year-old Henry, holding the French record of 51 goals in 123 internationals, helped the national team win the 1998 World Cup and European Championships in 2000.

In his glittering 20-year club career, Henry picked up trophies with Ligue 1 members Monaco, English Premier League's Arsenal Nike Air Max 97 UK , Barcelona in La Liga and New York Red Bulls of Major Soccer League.

He netted 175 English Premier League goals and is the Gunners' all-time leading goalscorer.

Born in Parisian suburb of Les Ulis, Henry started playing football at the age of six. Nurtured at the national football center, he first made his mark at Monaco, where he won the French league in 1997.

But the bulk of his career was spent at Arsenal under Wenger, who brought him to north London in 1999.

He was a crucial part of the 2003-2004 ""Invincibles"" team alongside fellow Frenchman Patrick Vieira, which went unbeaten as it stormed to the Premier League title. In England Nike Air Max 97 Ultra '17 UK , Henry won the Premier League twice and the FA Cup three times.

Henry left England for Barcelona in 2007, spending three years with the Spanish giants with whom he won the Champions League trophy in 2009.

He finished his career in the United States, playing for the New York Red Bulls in the MLS. However, he returned to Arsenal for four matches on loan from the Red Bulls in 2012, coming on as a substitute to score the winner against Leeds in the third round of the FA Cup.

Henry's last international game was during the 2010 World Cup when he came on as a second-half substitute in a 2-1 loss to hosts South Africa as France were dumped out of a tournament which had been a fiasco for the 1998 World Cup winners.

""It has been an incredible journey and I would like to thank all the fans, team mates and individuals involved with AS Monaco Nike Air Max 95 UK , Juventus, Arsenal FC, FC Barcelona, the New York Red Bulls and of course the French National Team that have made my time in the game so special,"" read the statement.

Henry will be a television pundit with Sky Sports in Britain starting next year.

""It is now time for a different career path and I am pleased to say that I will be returning to London and joining Sky Sports. I will hopefully share some of the insights, observations and experiences I have learnt over the years with you guys Nike Air Max 98 Supreme Pink UK ,"" he said.

""I have had some amazing memories (mostly good!) and a wonderful experience,"" he added. ""I hope you have enjoyed watching as much as I have enjoyed taking part.""

Earlier this month, Henry left the Red Bulls after his four-year contract expired, saying he needed time to think about he's future.
