LIGUE 1 - Thierry Henry tells about his return to the lawns of Ligue 1
Leading consultant of Ligue 1 for Amazon Prime Video, Thierry Henry challenges by his ease on the edge of the field of the championship of France. Maintaining a complicity displayed with the actors of L1, the former scorer of the Gunners (228 goals, 105 assists in 376 matches) seems to take extreme pleasure in this new role, as evidenced by his remarks granted for Le Parisien:
"this n is fun. They put us in very good conditions. I'm lucky to be with some good guys, Ben (Cheyrou), Thibault (Le Rol), Smaïl (Bouabdellah). We are a good team and it also allows me to reconnect with the French public and the L1. Everywhere, in the stadiums, we receive a really nice welcome. There are beautiful atmospheres, beautiful lawns, and even if we can no longer play, of course, we find good feelings. "
Impressing his respective colleagues by his rigor and his accuracy of analysis, the current assistant of Roberto Martinez at the head of the Belgian selection also evokes the emotions found under this new costume:
“I find it normal to work to prepare the matches. I've always done it like this and love it. Apart from my brief stint as a coach in Monaco, it's been a long time since I left France, since I lost this closeness to L1 and the public. This role of consultant at Amazon allows me to redo my journey and relive certain emotions. When I get to a stadium, I walk the halls, I go to the pitch. And the emotions are coming back… I came back to Monaco, where it all started for me, where I scored my first goals in L1. It has to do something. On Saturday I saw Bollaert again, I remembered that this is where I had my first selection for the French team. I also remembered a goal I scored in Warmuz, the action that preceded it. Everywhere, I remember beautiful memories, games, moments. But in Bollaert it was even more intense. "
