Thierry Henry will leave Barcelona this summer

Frenchman excluded from promotional duties

Barcelona kit launch

Yesterday, Spanish giants Barcelona unveiled their shiny new away kit, using fugly stars including Leo Messi and Carles ‘Captain Caveman’ Puyol.

Superstar players Deco, Eto’o and Ronaldinho were all absent from the launch, as they are fully expected to be plying their trade elsewhere in 2008/09. A semi-surprising absentee, however, was a certain Mr Thierry Henry.

So, if the Frenchman won’t be knocking about in Catalonia next season, where will he be? Well, yesterday he played in a charity match in Americaland, which also included Steve McManaman, Robbie Fowler and New York Red Bulls captain Claudio Reyna. Couple this with the fact that in 2007 he told the New York Times he would like to end his career in the Big Apple, and it looks like the striker could be following David Beckham across the Atlantic to play some Major League Soccerball pretty soon…

    Total bullshit. Thierry was on the original blacked out promotional image for the kits before the unveiling, Pep has said he wants a striker than complements Henry and Bojan, and he said he’d “end” his career in the MLS, maybe. He’s not ready to end it just yet.

    How boring and what a disservice to the poster?! Yikes. I suppose Barca has no interest in it’s heterosexual female fans!
