Henry admits enjoying life with Arsenal more than Barcelona

Thierry Henry admits he enjoyed playing for Arsenal more than Barcelona.

With Barca, Henry won the Champions League.

But the Montreal Impact coach also says: "At Arsenal, I could do whatever I wanted on the field.

"It was much easier, because either (Dennis) Bergkamp or (Nwankwo) Kanu were nearby. They remained in the centre, and I could be pulled back or on the flank. I never thought that I would leave Arsenal, but still did it.

"In Barcelona it was harder, there Bergkamp and Kanu were no longer there, I had to get used to the new style of the game and conditions. It took a lot of time, but it turned out I adapted in 2009, when we won everything that could be won."
