Retirement looms for Barca striker Henry

France striker Thierry Henry has enjoyed positive reviews for his performances with Barcelona this season, after a difficult first year with the Catalans, but did not dismiss media suggestions that he was "finished."

"They're not far from the truth. I have played 15 years at the top level and it takes its toll," the 31-year-old told Spanish daily Sport.

"My career will be over soon and being a striker it happens much quicker. As I have said before, I have never run as much as I do now with Barca."
