Montreal Impact head coach Thierry Henry recalls experiences with racism during playing career

Montreal Impact head coach Thierry Henry has been one of the league's most outspoken voices amid the Black Lives Matter movement, and he continued to do so in a lengthy, in-depth interview with Bleacher Report released on Monday.

In the video interview, Henry details instances of racism he experienced during his playing career with Arsenal and the French national team, and what he thinks needs to happen to eliminate racism from football. He also spoke of his experience living in New York when he played for the New York Red Bulls, and the changes he noticed in how he was treated by others as a Black man in a city where he wasn't recognized as frequently in public.

"We need to make people aware that we are in pain," Henry said. "Enough is enough. You fast forward and we're still in the same situation."

The whole interview is well worth your time. Give it a watch below.
