Henry hails ‘God Zidane’

5 August 2005 13:42

PARIS, Aug 5 (SW) – Arsenal and France international star striker Thierry Henry has spoken of his joy following Zinedine Zidane’s decision to come out of international retirement.

The London-based striker told French newspaper ‘Le Parisien’ he thought Zidane was a living god, later admitting nothing better could have happened to les Bleus only a few weeks away from crucial world cup qualifiers against Switzerland and Ireland.

“What I am about to say is strong, but it’s the truth. In France, everybody realized that God exists, and that he is back in the French international team. God is back, there is little left to say,” said Henry.

And it now seems Thierry Henry is far from the only person to consider Zidane’s international return as a huge event, following the sale of the remaining 10,000 tickets for France’s friendly game against Ivory Coast planned for the 17th August in Montpellier.

Zidane has since be joined in his new international commitment by Chelsea midfielder Claude Makelele while Juventus’ experienced defender Lilian Thuram is widely expected to follow his former team mates’ footsteps in the coming days.
