Sky Sports has announced the latest big signing to its football punditry team - Arsenal legend Thierry Henry.

The French World Cup winner - who retired as a player this week - will join Sky as a football expert and ambassador from the start of 2015.

He will work across Sky Sports' schedule of live international, European and domestic football, joining the likes of Gary Neville, Jamie Carragher, Jamie Redknapp and Graeme Souness.

Henry lifted over 35 major individual and team trophies during a highly decorated career, which took him to clubs such as Barcelona, Monaco, Juventus and New York Red Bulls.

He is France's all-time record goalscorer, having netted 51 times in 123 games for the national team.

But it was his time spent as an Arsenal player - across two spells and two different grounds - for which he is perhaps best known.

Playing at Highbury and the Emirates, Henry won the Premier League, FA Cup and four domestic Golden Boot awards. He was also an integral part of the famous Arsenal 'Invincibles' side of 2003-04, which went unbeaten for an entire league campaign.

Sky Sports Managing Director Barney Francis claimed the "best team" in football just got better. "The addition of Thierry Henry to our team of experts will help take Sky Sports’ football coverage to the next level," he stated.

"He’s played on the greatest stages, with some of the greatest players, in some of the greatest teams and for the first time, viewers can enjoy his insight and opinions throughout the football season."
