â€œIt is,â€™â€™ Henry admitted to the New York Post. â€œIt is, at the end of the day, MLS or not MLS. It is a rivalry in any sport in the US; when a team from New York plays against a team from Philly or New England or DC you have that type of rivalry and thatâ€™s the way it is.
â€œBut having said that, for us itâ€™s not only the rivalry and winning the game against Philly; itâ€™s getting three points because we need three points right now. It couldâ€™ve been anyone coming in we wouldâ€™ve had that mentality. Obviously it is Philly and I think their fans travel, so yeah, it makes it extra special.â€™â€™
