Thierry Henry: Arsenal legend mocked Tottenham on live TV ahead of Rennes match

Thierry Henry mocked Tottenham on live TV

Thierry Henry will always be an Arsenal legend.

The Frenchman played 377 times for the club across two spells, scoring 228 times.

He also won six trophies for The Gunners, including two Premier League titles.

Henry last played for the club in 2012 but he is and always will be Arsenal through and through.

And he showed that while working as a pundit on Amazon Prime Video.

Rennes’ form in Ligue 1 was being discussed. The French side suffered their second straight defeat and had Tottenham coming up next in the UEFA Europa Conference League.



“It’s the second consecutive loss for Rennes,” said one of Henry’s fellow studio guests. “It’s something they have to be worried about, furthermore on Thursday they are facing Tottenham in the Europa League at Roahzon Parc…”

Henry couldn’t help interjecting.

“Sorry, who?” he said.

His fellow pundit responded: “Tottenham.”

“I don’t know them,” Henry replied before looking to the camera with a mischievous look on his face.

“You want to make him angry?” the show’s presenter said while Henry pretended to look around confused.

Henry regularly got the better of Tottenham – he never lost to them in 11 games and scored five times in the process – and he’s still mocking them now.

Henry clearly still doesn’t think too highly of Arsenal’s most fierce rivals so he likely would have been pleased to see them struggle in France.

Loic Bade’s own-goal gave Spurs an 11th minute lead, but Flavien Tait’s effort 12 minutes later restored parity.

Rennes took the lead with 19 minutes remaining through Gaetan Laborde but Nuno Espirito Santo’s side managed to come away from France with a 2-2 draw thanks to Pierre Emile Hojbjerg’s late equaliser.
