Steve Nash believes that Thierry Henry will be suiting up for the New York Red Bulls next season. How does he know this? Apparently, Nash and Henry are the best of friends who share even their deepest secrets. It’s no wonder then, that Nash knows where the French striker is headed next season.

“Thierry is still a world-class player. We’ve seen players come over before who showed how great they were, but not necessarily every night,” said Nash. “I think he’s still capable of bringing it at the highest level, it’s amazing that he’s willing to come over at this stage of his career, to be honest. It’s a big coup for Red Bull and MLS as well.”

Nash continued, “He’s accomplished so much, I don’t know how many players have won as much — he’s won in England, he’s won in Spain, he’s won a Champions League, he’s won a European cup, he’s won a World Cup. He loves America, he loves New York City and is ready for a new challenge. So I’m thrilled I’ll be able to see him on a daily basis.”
