The Arsenal legend retires with a World Cup, a European Championship, a Champions League and a statue outside the Emirates.
Henry made his professional debut with Monaco in 1994 before signing for defending Serie A champions Juventus. However, limited playing time, led to him signing for the English club Arsenal for £11 million in 1999.
Thierry Henry was the Premier League top goalscorer in four separate seasons (2001-02; 2003-04; 2004-05 and 2005-06). No one else has earned the accolade this many times—Alan Shearer comes closest with the three Golden Boots that adorn his mantlepiece.
In the history of the English top-flight, only Jimmy Greaves (six) and Steve Bloomer (five) finished top goalscorer more often than the Frenchman. With 175 Premier League goals under his belt, Henry is the joint-fourth highest scorer in the league’s history, alongside Frank Lampard.
Only Alan Shearer (260), Andy Cole (187) and Wayne Rooney (179) have scored more.
Of those 175 goals, 136 were with his right foot, 31 with his left foot, and six were headers. Henry scored 23 Premier League penalties, while Lampard has padded out his numbers with 43 spot-kicks.
Most Goals at a Single Premier League Stadium:
Henry scored 114 of his 175 Premier League goals at Highbury.
This is the highest amount that any player has scored at a single Premier League stadium.
Only Player to Score 20+ Goals in 5 Successive Premier League Seasons:
Between the 2001-02 and 2005-06 seasons, Henry scored no fewer than 24 goals in each campaign.
This makes him the only player to have scored more than 20 goals in five successive Premier League seasons.
