He may have played alongside the likes of Zinedine Zidane and Lionel Messi, but Thierry Henry says that Arsenal legend Dennis Bergkamp is the best he's ever had the honour of lining up alongside of.

Henry was partaking in a Twitter Q&A for MLS when he was asked who was the best player he'd ever played with.

The Arsenal legend simply responded: "Dennis Bergkamp".

That's quite an endorsement from a man who has played with some of the greatest players to have ever graced the pitch.

The pair played together for Arsenal during the glory years under Arsene Wenger - helping the Gunners win two Premier League titles in 2002 and 2004. 

Henry is the club's all-time leading goalscorer, finding the back of the net 228 times in 377 appearances during his time in the Premier League.

Bergkamp meanwhile is similarly revered at the Emirates Stadium - Arsenal will unveil a statue of the non-flying Dutchman outside the stadium before their game against Sunderland on Saturday.

The 44-year-old, now a coach with Ajax, joined the Gunners in 1995 and went on to make more than 400 appearances for the club.

During the Q&A, Henry also revealed that Arsenal's former ground Highbury was his favourite to play in, while he also added that he believes Arsenal can win the title this season - but that it will be a "tough task".
