Kickin’ It debuts in style with the first of a two-part interview with an all-time great, Thierry Henry, who joins Kate Abdo, Clint Dempsey and Charlie Davies to discuss life and the beautiful game. Thierry encourages Christian Pulisic to replicate the fearlessness he shows on the international stage with his club team, “As a creative player if you don’t try to make mistakes, you cannot succeed.” He also explains how, before becoming an Arsenal legend, he initially struggled with the Gunners and what he did to earn Dennis Bergkamp’s respect. Clint describes the underdog mentality of US players which prompts a discussion about youth development and France’s world-famous Clairefontaine academy, where Thierry honed his skills. And things take an emotional turn as Charlie opens up about his childhood and what drove him to pursue a career in soccer.
