Meet Thierry Henry, who’s following in David Beckham‘s footsteps by leaving Europe to join the U. The French star says he loves visiting the Big Apple but his latest move isn’t just another vacation.
As the New York Red Bulls’ latest addition, Henry, 32, whose illustrious 16-year career includes playing for some of the world’s biggest clubs, including Barcelona and Arsenal, should have little trouble adjusting to his new home.
The “small affair” on the banks of the River Seine required a £1million French police security operation, with riot squads, bomb disposal experts and sniffer dogs for a perceived “terror threat”.
Certainly nobody in Paris would have been unaware there was an important wedding going on.
At one point, he was the ninth most marketable soccer player in the world and was a pitchman for Reebok. He’s a dad Henry married model Nicole Merry at an English castle in 2003 and the couple welcomed daughter Téa two years later.
Merry, who hails from London, starred with the soccer stud in several TV ads for Renault Clio cars but the couple split in September 2007.
Parker and Longoria were married until late 2010, after it was revealed that the Spurs star had been texting one of his teammates' wives.
