Thierry Henry To Start At Heart Of Barcelona Attack Against Malaga
Henry has been frustrated by being frequently used on the left hand side of the Blaugrana’s attacking trident recently, and an injury to Zlatan Ibrahimovic had reportedly given him the opportunity to start in the centre.
While the Swede has recovered from his sprained ankle and has been included in the squad to face Malaga, Sport believe that the Frenchman will still be at the heart of the attacking line.
The former Arsenal star has not been troubled by injuries recently, although Pep Guardiola fears that if Henry is overused then his chronic back problems will return.
The other problem facing the Frenchman is Andres Iniesta’s continuing lack of fitness, which leaves very few options on the left hand side other than himself.
Barcelona face Malaga on Saturday at 20:00 CET.
