Henry's future hazy after Houllier comments

04 October 2014, 11:11

New York - French football star Thierry Henry gave no hints about his future plans Friday after his boss said the 37-year-old New York Red Bulls striker likely will not return to the Major League Soccer club next season.

Gerard Houllier, Red Bulls global football director, told France Football in a story published Thursday that the former French national team star likely would leave the MLS squad after five seasons but might continue his career with another team rather than retire.

Henry's only comment on the matter after a workout Friday was "If you see him, ask him. Ask him when you see him."

That left Red Bulls coach Mike Petke to dance the delicate line between his boss and his star player, a former standout for Arsenal, Barcelona and Monaco who joined the Red Bulls in 2010.

"I can't speak for what Gerard said," Petke said. "All I can speak for is what I'm saying and that is I have zero idea and I believe that nobody has an idea.

"Only Thierry knows what he's going to do next year and he will announce that when he feels comfortable."

Henry has scored 50 regular-season goals in MLS matches, including nine in 27 games this season.

"Thierry is going to make that decision and announce or don't announce that whenever he feels comfortable," Petke said.
