Raymond Domenech Praises Thierry Henry For Handball In New Book

Raymond Domenech, the man who managed France during their World Cup qualifier victory over Ireland in November 2009, has a new book out titled 'My Passionate Football Dictionary'.

In the book the former France manager addresses Thierry Henry's handball which led to William Gallas' winning goal in extra time.

He [Henry] sacrificed his image for the sake of the France team.


Domenech was praising the striker in contrast with Zinedine Zidane who he says "sacrificed the France team's chances for the sake of his pride" when he headbutted Marco Materazzi during the 2006 World Cup Final.

It's hard to believe that Henry really computed the sacrifice he was making in that moment but Domenech seems to think that he did.
