New York Red Bulls striker has made it clear that he only has a winning mentality.
Ahead of Friday nightâ€™s MLS meeting with New England Revolution, which would see New Yorkâ€™s winless streak extend to seven if they fail to triumph, the Frenchman says he never likes playing for draws and is only targeting all three points.
â€śGood enough for me is to win every game; thatâ€™s good enough. If you can win and play well, thatâ€™s very good. So just imagine drawing; I donâ€™t see it as a good thing. Thatâ€™s my mentality,â€™â€™ said Henry.
Henryâ€™s comments come after Red Bulls coach Hans Backe said the team should be happy with a point per game as they deal without some key players who are away at the Gold Cup.
â€śYou dig in and you fight. My mentality is to try to win every game,â€ť he added.
â€śI understand where the boss is coming from; weâ€™re missing a lot of key players. But saying that, I think (debutant) Austin da Luz was the best player on the field (last week).
â€śHe took his opportunity and played well; so we need to do what we have to do with the players we have.â€™â€™
And Henry added that New York have been lucky to remain second in the Eastern Conference despite not winning in their last six.
â€śThankfully for us, nobody wants to win in the East. Every time we lose or donâ€™t win, they lose or donâ€™t win. Thatâ€™s where we got lucky because if anybody had a normal run they would be at least seven or eight points in front of everybody,â€™â€™ added Henry.
â€śNow weâ€™re in the same position; I keep on saying the same thing every week. We need to win. It didnâ€™t change.â€™â€™
