No hyperbole here, just simply one of the best conversations you'll hear between host Luis Miguel Echegaray and soccer legend Thierry Henry. Henry covers everything on this episode from his role as manager of the Montreal Impact in MLS to Lionel Messi's future at Barcelona. First, Luis and Thierry discuss MLS Decision Day 2020 as the Impact make a push for the postseason (2:15), as well as the difficulties of playing during a pandemic (5:00) and his impressions on the city of Montreal (10:00). MLS continues its rapid growth and Henry analyzes that rise as one of the biggest names ever attached to the league (14:15). Then, the conversation shifts to Europe, as the former Arsenal great breaks down the state of the club under the regime of Mikel Arteta (19:45). Next, a focus on the career of Lionel Messi and the lack of respect he sometimes receives from pundits ready to criticize his momentary lapses rather than praise his incredible achievements and the joy he brings to the game (23:00). There is speculation about Messi's future with Barcelona, but Henry says he just deserves to be happy wherever he plays. This wonderful interview concludes with an emphasis on the passion and desire it takes to be a world-class athlete and the work ethic it takes to get there (30:30). We hope you'll listen to our chat with one of soccer's all-time greats!
