Barcelona's Henry surprised by Spanish media scrutiny

Thierry Henry says he's happy with the way he has settled at Barcelona.

"Life is great," he said. "Everybody has been really good to me since I arrived.

"The town and the stadium are great, so are the team. Everybody is cool here, the staff and the fans have been great so far."

Henry added on TheGame pod cast at timesonline.co.uk: "I feel okay, the only difference is in training you have the press - and they want to come back home and sleep with you. They are just always there.

"It is a big change from England and Arsenal where I was playing.

"The press were never there in training, you had no fans in training and here it is always like this.

"At the beginning it is not like a shock, but you are like 'Whoa, it is always like this?'

"After, though, you do get used to it."
