      I mainly just follow 🏀 and ⚽ so it is interesting to me what it must be like in the two sports bc in basketball there are players known for defense but everyone plays both sides of the floor every play. I can only imagine if you spend a whole career basically just waiting for Henry or Pele or Messi or Mbappe or someone like that who has been blessed by God to come down the pitch and make you look foolish at least one out of every 5 times.

      And his mind & thought process would have not been put to good use without his ability to question his skils every week so as to better himself. He has a tremendous knowledge of the game, not only its technical aspects, but of its History too. He would watch dozens of games every months and analyze most of them. He worked a lot, an awful lot. His analysis are always deep, accurate, on point and give great hindsights on how top players think and act.

    Henry is the best TV analyst right now hands down. He has such a depth of understanding of the forward position and even better is able to articulate it so well. I think he could one day make a great coach. Very good teacher of the sport. He takes you into the thought process of players

    • JaseFace1985
      JaseFace1985 6 months ago +7

      @Yaban Namba Yeah, because in the old days' academy players used to work cleaning the changing rooms or 1st team players' boots, etc. It instilled some humility and created a bond (as long as the 1st team player wasn't a bully with it). But that doesn't fly with the kind of money and social media presence most players have these days even at a young age.

  • Bereket Amha
    Bereket Amha 10 months ago +389

    What Henry said in the first part about defenders is what makes Van Dijk the best. He rarely makes the first move even 1 on 1. He waits till the strikers don't know what to do.

      Cailen Varda 10 months ago +9

      Probably because he never had to face the likes of Henry, Ronaldo, Shevchenko, Drogba, Eto...etc... BUT i saw him against Portugal and CR7 made him look very very very plain and lost and broken... he is a good defender better than most in his time.... but they dont make them like they used to...

    i used to think Mbappe was overhype when he was in Monaco, so i wanted to checked and watched one of Monaco's game, and you don't need to be a scout expert to see just how good he is, not just fast, he's not normal, i agree to Henry to say that he's a freak, he's just build different, never seen someone like that.

      @ta fa LOL, different and better is two different words, no one said what level he is, just like Henry never said he was better than Messi or Ronaldo, but Mbappe is different, it means unique, you clearly are not smart enough to understand the difference.

      I thought he was a bit overrated too until we played Monaco in the UCL Round of 16 in 2017 and an 18 year old Mbappe decided to annihilate us in Pep's first year... now granted our defence was quite old and we had a bad GK but still... he showed up at the big stage in them 2 legs... he was unreal. Just in general actually that Monaco team... we talking Mbappe, Falcao, Fabinho, Bernardo, Benjamin Mendy (who was unreal for Monaco), Lemar and then some other quality players like Bakayoko, Glik, Sidibe and Subasic in goal... some team that.

  • hamrite

    Henry described in an interview how much his father, who was his coach in little league, influenced him by being ruthless about effort and quality of play. His dad gave Thierry a hard time driving back from a game they had won 6-0, telling they had no excuse, they should have scored 11 or 15 goals. Thierry grew up with a hyper motivation from his dad, and he worked for his skills and mind set .... and lately he has understood that Mbappe Is made of the same stuff. These guys train and get better all along their career.

      Crazy the admiration he has for someone just 1 year older than him, and beat numerous times (World Cup final in 98, and World Cup in 2006 in 1/4). Henry is arguably the greatest Premier League player in history, and definitely among the best strikers in the game. It's nothing but sheer humbleness to praise a contemporary rival and direct competitor and say "I learnt how to become a better player thanks to this guy".

      Barcelona - 37 - 34

    • Marvin Kenepa
      Marvin Kenepa 5 months ago +16

      @paul comerford R9 is the best player ever if not for the injuries and health issues. Prime wise it's R9 - Messi - Maradona I think.
      R9 was still better then 99% of players after suffering 2 of the same career ending injuries, a freaking heart attack and having hypothyroidism.
      After all of this he scored 8 goals at a the 2002 world cup and 2 in the final winning the ballon dor AGAIn after 23 months of total lmao.
      If this man didn't have injuries and health issues he would've won the ballon dor like 10 times in a row probably, we were robbed of his actual prime.
      And all of this in where football wasn't actually soft with most of the best defenders of all time playing in his era.

    This video just proves, that defenders also need to be praised for having to stop attacks like this all the time, and its a pity that the limelight is mostly on the strikers and sometimes mid-fielders, and great goalkeepers even, but defenders is the team's immune system.

    if guys like henry, zidane, zlatan, mourinho, ronaldinho & co. say that R9 is THE best player they ever saw.. then you can feel what an absolute monster he was. His prime on barca and inter were not normal at all. he could do everything he wanted to. Then he had the bad injurys with his knee and changed as a player alot but STILL (2002ish up to real madrid time) was the best player says it all really. He sadly was hindered alot by his injury. and yes messi and cr7 got 13+ years of top performance but were also lucky af with injurys. R9 is the biggest "what if... he didnt had the injurys" in football. There was another brazilian of similar power.. we all know his name: adriano. but sadly the dead of his father took all his happiness away and he declined fast in success.

    R9 was the most dominant player when he stepped on the scene. When he was in his prime, there was no comparison to anyone else. Injuries did its thing and he didn't have the longevity, but in my humble opinion the best football player I've ever seen play.

    I loved when he said he would give 5 runs for no reason just to let you know he’s faster than you.
    I was never fast when I played, so I used to just run people over off the ball a few times and by mid game people played back off of me and it gave me space. Just gotta use whatever you’ve got. I didn’t have speed, so I used strength lol 😂

  • Mel Fox

    I really miss watching my fav player all time. I was fortunate to see him very early in his career when he still played for AS Monaco in the UEFA Cup vs Mönchengladbach on October 15th 1996 (thanks to the internet for finding this date). Watching this guy made me develop interest for football.
    Back then, there was no relevant internet, so cable TV was the only opportunity to see him play rarely. He firstly showed up on the big stage during world cup 1998 and became a famous player, but not a star yet. After a short stint at Juve, where he was used as a winger and couldn't score many goals (3 in 16 games), it was Arsenal London and coach Arsene Wenger who really helped him become the great player that might became a role model for young CR7 or Mbappe later on.
    Coming from Hamburg, Germany the best opportunity to see him in real life was an UEFA Cup game in Bremen on March 23rd 2000. So my dad took us there and I witnessed him play and scoring a goal, but also receiving his only red card in European competitive football. It was an amazing experience.
    The following years he improved like each year and scored more goals anybody had expected in his early years, where he hadn't been very efficient.
    The only thing, he wasn't able to achieve has been being the top player of a team that wins the biggest trophy. In 1998 he was too young and Zidane was the main guy for France winning the world cup. In 2000 he performed ok on that French team who won the EURO 2000. In 2002 and 2004 he was in his prime, but France couldn't win a title. In 2006 France made the world cup final again, but Zidane was their best player. As Arsenal's best player he couldn't lift them to the UEFA Cup in 2000 losing to Galata and not to the Champion's league title, losing to Barca in 2006. Then he joined Barca to win the CL as their maybe 4th or 5th best player in 2009 at age 32.
    So Zidane, Ronaldinho, Messi and even Hagi took the spotlight on the biggest stage from him. But regardless, it was very very special to see him play. Thank you, Titi!

    When Thierry Henry defers to you as better and you're only 24 that's a legit scary thought to put together knowing how much of a beast Henry was in his prime 😅

    Your foot always has to be closer to the ball than the opponents foot, so you're always there first. This way no one can take the ball from you. But to get past them, you need confidence and creativity. And speed always helps of course.

    He's basically got the same advantage that Jonah Lomu had: massive speed combined with physical presence. It's like when you were 12 or 13 and some of the lads you were playing against were already maturing into young adults - the physical disparity was impossible to compensate for and they could just knock the ball past you and chase after it. Kyle Walker just about kept Mbappe quiet, but only just.

    He’s direct and knows what he’s doing he knows his next move I watch him and I used the same tactic he used I like to dribble and attack defenders but I’m smart about it these guys you play with dribble dribble dribble hoping they can make something out of nothing he’s my favorite player to watch currently I used to watch ronaldinho all my life and I can’t learn from any other player to used into my game until mbappe came along young kids who are attacks should watch mbappe we can learn from him

    Not sure if it was intentional or not, that the host quietly walked out of the scene, and let these three have the discussion. It was nicely done. They showed respect to each other. Love how Henry concedes that these two (and other defenders) would stop him passing more often. But then again...Henry would need only ONE--to finish the job.

      @Adam Driver You are correct. Many people forgot that R9 was on the 1994 Brazil team that won. If I am not mistaken he was 17. Henry is my favorite player, but I love him even more for the praise and admiration he has for R9.

    Crazy to think Micah is still only 34, I think if he not had as many injuries and his body held up he'd prob still be playing in the prem or championship. Knee injuries can really change a athletes career even if he was already on a downward projectory

    Henry makes top ten best ever in my opinion, he won world cup and got to another world cup final and won eourpean cup. Then domesticly cleaning up. I happy seen him play in person , insanely good

    Thierry is so humble.
    I'm a little biased here, because I really loved Ronaldo's and Thierry's game. Just amazing.
    Mbappe has that, that both of them had.
    Honestly, for true fans, Thierry and Ronaldo were beasts and magicians at the same time, and we who have seen it, just beautiful.
    He is not there yet for me, but he got it for sure.

    Because he's extremely quick. He's a great pace player but what is important is can he adapt his game when he loses pace after injuries or age and doesn't find himself with loads of time and space? Many pace players drop, Torres, Owen are examples. Phenomenal when young but after injuries and age they lose pace and can't reinvent themselves.

    If an attacker is too good, it is better to risk him going outside and crossing than letting him inside. If he gets inside, he can score or give a pass, versus just giving a pass outside
