Henry credits Guardiola for his success

"I didn't arrive at Barcelona just to win the Champions League but to win everything," said Henry. "The coach wanted me to stay. He was the man that convinced me to stay."

"This is incredible. I had wanted to win the Champions League for a long time. It's something that I was missing. It's a special feeling because to win a treble in modern football is not easy and yet we have done it.

"No Spanish team has achieved what we have, to win a treble, and I think everyone will remember this Barça side. I'm delighted because I always wanted to make history at this club and we've done just that. Now we will celebrate."

Henry played against Barcelona in the Champions League final three years ago with Arsenal but was on the losing side.

He was a doubt for this week's showdown with United but recovered from a ligament injury to his right knee that had kept him out since early May.

"For me it's wonderful to have been able to make it to the final and play," he said. "It's not easy to come back after several weeks out of action but just like Andrés Iniesta, I was determined to play."
