Unsettled at Juventus Turin, Thierry Henry joined Arsenal on 3 August 1999 for an estimated fee of $14,7 million. Reuniting with his former Monaco manager Arsène Wenger, the French winger was rapidly fouled into a top striker in order to replace Nicolas Anelka, transferred to Real Madrid.

Due to the quick and physical English game, Henry failed to score in his first eight games as a Gunner. He even conceded that he had to "be re-taught everything about the art of striking." But doubts were quickly dispelled when he scored his first goal for Arsenal.

Few months later, the Frenchman started becoming the legend he is for Arsenal fanatic supporters. Particularly when he striked this terrific volley against Manchester United. Compatriot Fabien Barthez could just admire the trajectory of the ball.

Then, you must do the same right now:

Simply respect Thierry Henry.
