Thierry Henry was already famous from his time in Europe, but a move to the MLS has furthered his reputation and led him to become a celebrity footballer.
His ever growing reputation has become evident, and his celebrity status took effect when he came to America and to one of the biggest cities in the world, New York City.
Overall, Henry has been in a car advert for Renault, a shaving advert for Gillette, and numerous Nike adverts.
His status is continuing to grow and his off field endorsements are continuously furthering his celebrity status as his career enters its final years.
However, it is his work off the field that has led him to become a football celebrity.
