Henry: I’m still not sparkling

Henry said: “I’m not completely myself. It’s never easy after a World Cup, especially when you get to the Champions League final too. But I’m still there – with France, in Europe and in the Premiership.

“It’s true that I’m still not sparkling. I haven’t done any basic preparation – I went on the attack straight away and I’m paying for that at the moment. No player who went a long way in the World Cup is sparkling at the moment.

“The supporters expect more from me, and so do I. I feel like I’ve got over it all on the emotional level but perhaps my body hasn’t completely recovered.”
