Arsenal greats Pires, Vieira made it easier to win titles - NYRB's Henry

New York Red Bull striker Thierry Henry believes it is not very easy to win a MLS title.

The Frenchman has clinched five league championships throughout his career with AS Monaco, two with Arsenal and two with Barcelona and suggests that playing alongside such stars as Robert Pires and Patrick Vieira made life a lot easier in achieving success.

"It's harder. Way harder," he said in an interview with Sports Illustrated.

"(At Arsenal) I didn't have to tell Robert Pires or Patrick Vieira what to do, so I was concentrating on what I had to do.

"I'm not having a go at anyone; I'm just saying that it's easier to have guys who know exactly what it takes."
