Sebastien Le Toux has spoken of his delight to be playing next to one of his childhood idols in Thierry Henry.

The Frenchman joined New York Red Bull from Vancouver Whitecaps in a trade on Friday and is thrilled to call the former France international a teammate.

"I was young and I used to watch (Henry) in World Cup '98, him scoring goals and being the superstar he is," Le Toux said.

"It's just great and some of my friends were jealous, it's funny. He's a great guy too and just a great player. I'm just lucky and I'm just going to enjoy all the moments I can have over here with him."
