Thierry Henry: Lonely at the Top

Thierry Henry

Lonely at the Top

Philippe Auclair

The definitive biography of the Arsenal, France and Barcelona legend

‘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
