Thierry Henry: Arsenal's Greatest Player.
1. Thierry Henry:
Arsenal’s all-time leading goal scorer is an iconic player who flourished under the guidance of Arsene Wenger and helped Arsenal sustain one of the club’s most glorious eras.
After arriving in 1999, Thierry Henry helped Arsenal win both the League Title and the FA Cup during Arsenal’s 2001-02 season, netting an impressive 32 goals. The following year, Henry was named the PFA Player of the Year. Then, during the 2003-04 campaign, Henry cemented himself as a Gunner legend when he helped lead the team through an undefeated season. He helped Arsenal to obtain the name of “The Invincibles”—winning both the league and the prestigious Golden Boot award.
Overall, Thierry Henry’s smooth style of play and clinical finishing skills help personify Wenger’s vision of Arsenal football. He quickly became the face of Arsenal, and despite the fact that he would later depart for Barcelona and currently plays for the New York Red Bulls, he remains one of Arsenal’s most beloved players.
