Henry: I won’t leave Barcelona

The French ace has been linked with a January move to Premier League side January.

“I am very clear about this and I am happy here. I do not see myself playing in England. I could maybe do some great things in England, but I have not won anything with Barça and I have to stay,” he told Catalan television’s Hora Q programme.

“It is not that I really want the Champions League, it is because I want to win the league and Copa del Rey.

“I am happy, yes. I have said so many times. I like the city, the food and the climate.

“When I put on the Barcelona shirt before going out on to the pitch it is an incredible moment. Last year it was not so incredible, but it was an honour to play.”

“I do not want it to sound like an excuse, but we have showed this season that we if we play like a team then we can win trophies,” he continued. “Having the best players in the world does not guarantee you anything.

“We do have to recognise though, that we do have some of the best players in the world and the best striker in the world in Samuel.

“He is a much better central striker than me and we are fortunate that he stayed.

“It is normal that after what happened last year they were not happy. I was also angry with myself. The fans have to know that we do not go home feeling happy if we have not played well.

“Everyone new that it was difficult to explain why we did not win anything with the squad that we had, but now we are playing as a team we can change that.”
