The 29-year old Englishman, who joined the Red Bulls from Notts County in January, has already scored five goals for his new club and Henry, who is one ahead of him on six, says his teammate can take out the goalscoring award this season.
“I tip him to finish top goal-scorer this year. I tip him, yeah,’’ Henry told the NY Post ahead of the weekend’s clash with Columbus Crew which ended 1-1.
“I knew he was going to score goals straightaway. When Luke has the ball, he wants to shoot. Good for him; he’s that type of striker. If you don’t give him the ball, he’s not happy, he will curse.
“I knew if we were going to play well, Luke was going to score plus-15. And I will tell you, I’m more than happy to score goals, but I would love if Luke finishes top goal-scorer.
“I think Luke right now is living a dream. He’s been unleashed. He’s happy, he’s buzzing. You need to be like that to play good football.”
