New York Red Bull head coach Mike Petke is not stressing about Thierry Henry’s current injury problem.

The French striker missed the weekend’s 1-0 loss to Montreal Impact with a knee ligament sprain and is now back in training but is not a certain starter for Saturday’s clash with Philadelphia Union.

“He looked good,” Petke said via a conference call.

“Of course, there’s some tenderness and discomfort [but] we like where he’s at early in the week. [He was] competing in full training with certain times a little bit of limited mobility, but we like where he’s at right now.”

The Red Bulls currently sit second bottom on the Eastern Conference table with two draws and two losses from their first four outings whilst the Union are up in fourth with two wins and a loss from their opening three fixtures.
