New York Red Bulls GM Erik Soler says Thierry Henry has made an immediate impact on merchandise sales.

Henry has outstripped all MLS stars in being the highest shirt seller this past season.

Soler told the New York Post: "He was the best selling player in the league, by far, unless that's changed in the last 14 days.

"So we're very happy. We did everything we wanted to last year except the loss here. That made us unhappy.''
