Thierry Henry: "I know what this derby represents"

Thierry Henry: "I know what this derby represents"
Two days before the derby against OGC Nice, Thierry Henry discussed the importance of this particular match in a press conference this morning. Excerpts.

“This victory in Amiens can be a little calming. Now we must keep it going at home, something we did not do after the match in Caen. We had some good moments against Amiens, but we managed to stay the course physically unlike against Montpellier.”

“There was joy after the match. It is certainly fun but I see a very clear message: everyone wants it. It’s beautiful, but do not change that and continue to work. “

“I was not born here but I was trained here and I know what this derby represents, everyone remembers the win (4-3) the year of the title. Beyond that, Nice is a team that does not concede many goals, who plays and who fights to the end, like its coach Patrick Vieira.”

With Pat’ (Vieira) it’s more than friendship between us. Pat’ is a reference not only for me but for everyone. He’s always been the prodigy, the first in the class, someone who always keeps you going. I’ll talk for hours. He’s a great guy. “

“My first derby is also my first professional match. Collectively it does not remain a very good memory since we had lost (2-0) at Louis-II. After that I was happy to have started for the first time even if at the end of the match everyone went to the parking area and I went straight back to my room at the training center (located inside the stadium).”

Rise. Risk. Repeat.
