To mark Arsene Wenger’s 20th anniversary since becoming Arsenal manager, Thierry Henry was sent by Sky Sports to interview the man he still refers to as “boss”.

In a wide-ranging interview, Henry and Wenger discussed the current Arsenal squad but also reminisced over old times.

Towards the end of the interview, which was broadcast on Sky Sports before Arsenal’s 1-0 victory over Burnley on Sunday, Henry asked Wenger a series of questions about his 20-year tenure with the Gunners.

First, Henry asked Wenger if he knew which player he’d used most throughout his Arsenal tenure.

“Kolo Toure?” Wenger responded while looking rather unconvinced with his own answer.

Wenger was then a little surprised when Henry told him the answer was, in fact, Patrick Vieira.

“It’s funny,” Wenger said to Henry, “because I had a hesitation between Patrick and Kolo and you.”

The Gunners’ boss was then asked which player he has subbed the most.

“Theo Walcott?” Wenger replied.

When he was told the answer was Dennis Bergkamp, Wenger reacted with complete surprise.

Laughing, the 66-year-old said: “Look, I’m ready to be crucified for that!”

“That can be a positive as well,” Wenger added. “The game was won already!”
