Thierry Henry Shoots Himself In The Foot With World Cup Handball
In a gold plated example of gullibility Thierry Henry has undermined his reputation and sent his brand sponsors running for the hills in case they are associated with cheating.
Sacre Bleu! Quelle tricherie. There is clearly an inverse ration between soccer skill and acumen. Nobody like a cheat and nobody likes an internationally uncovered cheat. How shallow any success in the World Cup will be for the French Soccer team now.
Va va voom the Irish are pushing for a Renault (oops I meant Replay) and the French are making sure that it isn't handed to them on a plate. In 2006, Henry was valued as the ninth most commercially marketable footballer in the world. Not any more his product endorsements look like they might stall.
As for his other sponsorships? perhaps they need to review their straplines?
Nike - Just Do What You Have To To Win
Reebok - I'm Not What I Seem
Gilette - The Worst A Man Can get
Pepsi - Dare To Call Me A Cheat
