Henry: NYRB has no excuses in MLS Cup pursuit

Thierry Henry is targeting the 2014 MLS Cup with New York Red Bulls following last season's Supporters' Shield triumph.

The veteran French striker was a key contributor to the Red Bulls' minor Major League Soccer premiership in 2013 but the club captain is now eyeing further success as the new season approaches.

New York made history last term by finishing on top of the MLS standings for the first time but that is not enough for former Arsenal star Henry who is immediately looking at improvement for the 2014 campaign.

"What we have over other years is we can turn on that we won, and say look at the end: We grew and we managed to go on a run and we managed to win the Supporters' Shield," Henry said.

"Now we can build on this and try to carry on and win even more, because obviously it wasn't enough to win the whole thing.

"Hopefully we can start with something we know, instead of losing time finding something we know. We won't have that excuse anymore."

New York kick off the new season with a trip to BC Place to take on Vancouver Whitecaps this Saturday, March 8.
