Barcelona’s French striker Thierry Henry has admitted the club will struggle without the injured Lionel Messi.
Henry told the club’s website that the Argentinian forward “is very important because he always makes the difference and it is very difficult to play without a footballer like him, even if we don’t have any choice.”
“Leo is Leo. He has done incredible things this season and it will be very hard for us to make up for his absence,” said Henry.
Barca confirmed yesterday that Messi would be out of action for six weeks after tearing a muscle in his left leg during Tuesday night’s Champions League victory over Celtic.
Henry, who joined the Catalan club from Arsenal last summer, admitted he was not happy with his own performances this season.
“I am never happy with my output,” said Henry. “Like when I played at Arsenal, I am always disappointed when I don’t help the team.
