Thierry Henry goes for a lovely stroll in New York
Oh God! They’re in New York!
Everyone knows what retirement looks like – bewildered old men clumsily digging up roses to avoid awkward conversations with their wives/grandchildren, endless pots of unnecessary tea. But who wants to know what semi-retirement looks like?
Okay, so that’s absolutely everyone.
By the looks of things, semi-retirement looks great, as proven by Thierry Henry, who now appears to spend his days when he isn’t half-heartedly hoofing a ball around in the MLS, enjoying delicious meals in New York City with his girlfriend, who just so happens to be a professional model.
The featured pictures - which, be honest, wouldn’t look out of place in the legendary “society” rag Hello magazine - find the Frenchman out and about with his pals, having presumably just enjoyed a few slices of fresh pizza at a popular Italian restaurant called La Gazzetta.
Fact fans will be impressed to learn that the pictures were taken in an area of NYC called the Meatpacking District, which was a notoriously transexual area in the 1980s, before undergoing something of a transformation of its own, to the point where it was boldly declared “New York’s most fashionable neighbourhood” in 2004.
Rather hilariously, Thierry is showing his age by wearing a Run DMC t-shirt…
