Thierry Henry concedes has yet to his his stride for Barcelona and needs more time to adapt to the Spanish style of football.
“The Arsenal Henry was at Arsenal, now I’m at Barcelona and you won’t see the Arsenal Henry any more,” he said.
“Barcelona are a different team, with a very different way of playing and I, too, have to play differently.
“Maybe I haven’t been at my best level up to now, but I try to help the team and have scored four goals.”
Henry signed a four-year deal with Barcelona in June, afetr sealing a £16.1m move from Arsenal.
“Here they play differently to the way they play at Arsenal. There we played a more direct style and the ball came to me more quickly,” he added.
“But I have to adapt to the club and the team and not the other way round and that takes time. Barcelona have played this way for many years, it is their style and I have to adjust to it.”
Barca are currently two points off leaders Real Madrid after nine games in the current campaign in Spain.
