Ferguson predicts Henry will be MLS success
Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson predicts Thierry Henry will be a success with Major League Soccer's New York Red Bulls.
Henry's agent, Darren Dein, said this week "speculation is premature" the 32-year-old French forward will join the Red Bulls after the World Cup.
Henry has one season remaining in his contract with Barcelona, but he started just 15 league matches in the season ending last weekend.
Speaking at a news conference Tuesday, Ferguson made it sound as if Henry's decision to join MLS was a done deal.
Ferguson says Henry has "not a deteriorated player by any manner or means."
"He's still a very, very competent player. Maybe he doesn't have the blinding pace he had five years ago, but he's still quick." - AP
