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.”

Henry, who joined the Catalan club from Arsenal last summer, admitted he was not happy with his own performances this season.
