Henry Give Comment After Hattrick Againts Valencia

Thierry Henry has come in for plenty of criticism in his time at the Camp Nou, most of it justified, but his stellar performance against Valencia brought back shades of the man who terrorised defences in his prime.

Henry Humble After Barcelona Hat-Trick Against Valencia

Needless to say, it filled the Frenchman, who has had a tough week to say the least, with immense pride and joy.

After the match, Henry was asked what the difference was between this Barcelona team and last year's incarnation. His reply was simple: "I do not know, but we want to continue this way because the fans are enjoying it and so are we."

As is becoming the norm amongst the squad, Henry was quick to dampen any talk of titles, saying, "We have not won anything yet. We have to take each game on it's merit, and we must already concentrate on the Shakhthar game, and then Real Madrid. Today, we knew about the Villarreal result beforehand, we wanted to win and we did it well."

The current performances are a far cry from those that saw Barca pick up just one point from their opening two games against Numancia and Racing Santander, and Henry described the change as incredible. "In the first few days there were some problems, but football changes so fast," continued the forward.

Henry was reluctant to speak about his own performance, preferring to concentrate on the team's effort as a whole instead. "We won three points, that is the most important," said Henry. "I am very happy with my goals, because they have helped to win. At times they will come from Messi, at times from Eto'o, at times from somewhere else."

Henry and Lionel Messi were joined up front by Aliaksandr Hleb, despite many expecting Bojan to fill the shoes of the suspended Samuel Eto'o. But the youngster, who provided an assist to Henry's third goal after coming on, was not disappointed, and said, "These decisions are for the coach. I just have to be ready at every time to prove that I can do well."

Finally, the forward offered his opinions on El Clásico, saying, "We want three points, but teams in crisis always play better in such games."

As impressive as their performances against Valencia were, both Henry and Bojan will be hoping for something even better in the greatest game of all next Saturday.
