VIDEO: The Thierry Henry flipbook, a video that channels the genius of the Frenchman through animation | SIDELINE

Thierry Henry is something of a footballing genius, as we all know.

And on this Friday — some 48 hours before Henry has the chance to lift his first major team trophy since coming to the New York Red Bulls in 2010 — MLS+ drops the Thierry Henry flipbook video on us.

The video features a few of his greatest goals, some of his greatest moments and all of his soccer genius in a way that you've never seen before. How else can you properly illustrate a man who has scored over 400 competitive, first-team goals in his illustrious career?

Quite simply, he is the best, and all the way down to the Gang Starr track in the background, this video is the best.
