Is Henry Really That Far Over The Hill?

Dakota RubinSenior Analyst ISeptember 27, 2008

News reports today stated that Thierry Henry may be on his way out of Barcelona.

After recovering from an injury, Henry has been asking for more consistent playing time and, thus far, not receiving it. According to reports, this could lead to Henry leaving the club.

But where would he go?

These same reports are saying that the MLS could be his next destination. We have been hearing for a while that eventually Henry would make his way across the pond to MLS, but isn't this a little too soon?

No offense to MLS, but they are no La Liga or Premiership. They are a second tier league and should not get players of Henry's quality unless they believe they are making their way onto the other side of the hill.

Henry has not looked great over the past two seasons, but he is still one of the best finishers in the world.

Does this mean that MLS has significantly improved over the years to attract talent like Henry at this point in their careers?

Or has Henry's career sunk to an all-time low?
