Former Arsenal and France striker Thierry Henry has announced his retirement from football after a trophy-laden 20-year career to take up a media role.

The 1998 World Cup winner, 37, left New York Red Bulls this month but there was speculation he might choose to play on at another club.

“It has been an incredible journey,” he said. Henry is joining Sky Sports after being a World Cup pundit for the BBC.

The Frenchman, who also played for Juventus, Barcelona and Monaco, scored 175 Premier League goals and is fourth on the list of all-time scorers.

Henry won two Premier League titles and three FA Cups with the Gunners, where he played between 1999 and 2007.

He added the Champions League trophy with Barcelona in 2009 and returned to Arsenal for four matches on loan from the Red Bulls in 2012, coming on as a substitute to score the winner against Leeds in the third round of the FA Cup.
