Striker Thierry Henry revealed he agonised over his decision to leave Arsenal following eight happy years in London but felt he could not turn down a move to Barcelona.

Henry was unveiled by the club at a news conference at the Nou Camp on Monday afternoon and paraded in front of 30,000 loyal fans at the club´s stadium after signing a four-year contract with the Catalans. And Arsenal´s record goalscorer underlined his admiration for his new employers and is relishing the prospect of entertaining the Barcelona faithful next season.

"I have said so many times why I left Arsenal, I don´t want to go back to that, but it was hard to leave," he said. "I always said that if I ever left Arsenal it would be to play for Barcelona. That is no disrespect to anybody."
