Henry's opinion on Messi joining PSG

"Balance is the most important. At one point, we always talk about great players, attacking, going forward, but we need a balance.
"We are talking about the team in which I played at Barca, but people forget to point out that we weren't conceding a lot of goals.
"In general, teams that don't concede a lot of goals are not far from the title, or even from the Champions League.

"When you have superhuman players, it gets a little easier but when I see how Paris is evolving at the moment, they concede too many goals for my taste to be able to go a little further.
"It is true that there was a lack of players but the balance is the most important."
