Thierry Henry : Lonely at the Top, Paperback Book


`The football book of the year' Ian Herbert, Independent Thierry Henry - gifted, charismatic and a genuinely world-class footballer - has passed into Arsenal legend as the hero of a team that finally ended Manchester United's dominance.

But as he approached the autumn of his career, Thierry's crown began to slip - from the infamous `Hand of Gaul' incident to a dismal World Cup 2010 campaign.

Suddenly, a player who Arsene Wenger once dubbed `the greatest striker ever', a man who had spent his career at the very top of the game, began to learn how lonely such a position could be. Drawing from numerous interviews and impeccable sources, as well as his own observations over the course of Henry's entire career, award-winning author Philippe Auclair has produced the most complete portrait of the Arsenal hero ever to be written.

Clear-eyed, lyrical and passionately argued, Thierry Henry: Lonely at the Top is as raw, shocking and thought-provoking as it is celebratory of Henry's outstanding flair and talent. `Superb . . . a thoroughly recommended read' James Olley, Evening Standard `Illuminated by finely turned phrases and vivid insights' Richard Williams, Guardian Sports Books of the Year
