The former striker enjoyed a fruitful playing career which saw him conquer England with Arsenal, Europe with Barcelona and the world with France

Thierry Henry is one of the most recognisable faces in world football having won the highest honours in the game during a career with Arsenal, Barcelona and France.

The former striker lifted a World Cup and European Championship with Les Bleus, Premier League titles with the Gunners and the Champions League with Barca, becoming one of the most marketable players in the game in the process.

His playing ability ensured that he became one of the highest earners in the Premier League, while his off-field appeal allowed him to front numerous advertisement campaigns as he secured plenty of lucrative endorsement deals.

Henry's playing days are over, but the Frenchman's appeal endures as he embarks on a coaching career. Goal takes a look at how much he is worth.


What is Thierry Henry's net worth?


During the peak of his playing career, Henry was the ninth most commercially valuable footballer in the world, with the likes of Ronaldinho and David Beckham at the top end of the spectrum.

His status as one of the most marketable stars meant that he earned a significant sum during his playing days, which he would have invested, but he continues to draw in lucrative contracts since hanging up his boots.

His exact net worth remains unclear, but website The Richest estimates that it stands at around $60m or £47m.


How much does Thierry Henry earn?


Henry's contract with Monaco prior to his departure from the club was reported to be worth anywhere between €4m (£3.5m/$4.1m) and €7m (£6.2m/$8m) a year.

According to Nice-Matin, the former Arsenal star's salary with Monaco worked out at €350,000 (£310k/$400k) a month, which would mean that he would have been earning roughly the same as Leonardo Jardim. Given Henry's relative inexperience in management, that figure seems more likely than the higher fees reported.

Prior to becoming Monaco boss, Henry had served as Roberto Martinez's assistant, but he did not take home a salary, opting to donate it to charity instead.

He also worked as a pundit and analyst for Sky Sports and was earning a reported £4 million ($5.1m) a year in his role with the broadcaster before taking up the full-time coaching role at Stade Louis II.


What sponsorship deals does Thierry Henry have?

Henry had a number of sponsorship deals with different sportswear manufacturers during his playing career.

He was a prominent member of Nike's roster during the early stages of his career and appeared in a number of commercials, including the famous 'Secret Tournament' production alongside the likes of Ronaldo, Luis Figo and Ronaldinho.

That deal came to an end following the 2006 World Cup and Henry subsequently came to an agreement with Reebok, for whom he appeared in their "I Am What I Am" advertisement campaign along with figures such as rapper 50 Cent, skateboarder Steve Williams and actor Lucy Liu.

Towards the end of his playing career, Henry linked up with German sportswear giants Puma.

As well as sportswear brands, Henry also found himself working with French automobile manufacturer Renault during his career and was the face of their advertisement campaigns for the Renault Clio in the early 2000s, in which he uttered the memorable phrase, "Hey Bobby! What's the French for 'Va va voom'?"

He recently began working with Renault again in 2018, helping to promote their partnership with Sky Sports for the network's Premier League coverage.

During his playing days, Henry also had endorsement deals with Pepsi, Gillette, Gatorade, EA Sports (as part of their FIFA video game series) and Konami (for Pro Evolution Soccer).

In the lead up to the 2014 World Cup, he was a part of a glittering ensemble of football stars used to promote Beats By Dre in their 'The Game Before the Game' commercial, which featured Neymar and Luis Suarez.
