After defeating Barca on Saturday night, Pires declared: "His teammates are not playing with him like they should be. They do not look for him when they have the ball. In the Madrigal, as soon as he touched the ball you could see he was a different man. He's someone who needs to have the ball and be part of a collective game, as what happened at Arsenal.

"Barcelona and Henry must adapt mutually. Perhaps he can do more, but his teammates must get him involved in the play. I say this because I know that it is very easy to play with Thierry."
