Thierry Henry is concerned that his scoring instincts have been affected by playing on the left wing instead of centre forward at Barcelona.
“Honestly, it can be a problem,” Henry told L’Equipe in an interview on Friday.
“When (France) played in Spain in February, I was lost up front, I didn’t know where to run. My reflexes in front of goal are not what they used to be.
“Hopefully, I will play up front again with France before the Euro (2008) finals,” he said.
Henry became France’s all-time top scorer in October and has netted 44 goals in 98 internationals.
The former Arsenal forward joined Barcelona last year but has failed to live up to expectations.
“You can’t compare with what I used to do with Arsenal. It is impossible,” Henry continued.
“Here, I am the guy who plays on the left, only the guy who plays on the left. Once again, you can’t score as many goals whether you play in the box or, like I do, you start running 60 metres from goal.
“I have never run so much in my whole career.”
