Former Arsenal and FC Barcelona star Thierry Henry has snubbed the great Lionel Messi as the best talent he has ever played with.
During a live chat show on CBS for the UEFA Champions Champions League, the 44-year-old Henry was asked to quickly name the best teammate he has ever had, purely based on footballing ability.
Without much delay, Henry named his former Arsenal teammate and Dutch star Dennis Bergkamp.
“Dennis Bergkamp.” Before the program’s host, Kate Abdo replied: “Not Messi?”
“Dennis Bergkamp. Is it quickfire? Dennis Bergkamp,” the Frenchman insisted.
Meanwhile, Henry is likely to watch Arsenal’s next English Premier League outing against Aston Villa this weekend.
