Football: PRIZE GUY HENRY'S RECORD RETURN


Byline: By LEE REYNOLDS

THIERRY HENRY has become the first player to win the Footballer of the Year trophy for the THIRD time.

Henry was voted Footballer of the Year in 2003 and 2004, the first back-to-back winner, and the first overseas player to win twice. Now he has gone one better after shooting Arsenal into the Champions League final.

The French striker fought off stiff competition from Wayne Rooney and Steven Gerrard to win the prestigious award picked by the Football Writers' Association and dedicated it to his team-mates at Highbury.

Henry, 28, said: "It is all about the team and without my team-mates I would not have won.

"What I am especially proud of, though, is that I am the first person to win the Footballer of the Year trophy three times.

"It's always pleasing to be the first to achieve something - it's a little piece of history.

"My hope now is that the team go on to create history of their own by becoming the first Arsenal side to win the Champions League.

"I would like to thank all of the Football Writers' Association members who voted for me. It's a wonderful honour and I feel very privileged."

Paul Hetherington, FWA chairman, said: "Henry is a deserving winner in a season when there have been several outstanding candidates, such as Terry, Rooney and Gerrard.

"Henry's achievement ranks him up there as the greatest player in the 59-year history of the award.
