Thierry Henry has, unsurprisingly, admitted he would never lead Tottenham after reflecting on the start of Arsenal’s new season.
The Gunners completely dominated Nuno Espirito Santo’s side in the first North London derby of the season last month, as Mikel Arteta led his side to a comfortable 3-1 victory at Emirates Stadium.
Legendary figure Henri, who spent eight years with the Gunners, reflected on this game. However, he couldn’t turn down the chance to dig at Tottenham in the process.
Henry told the Prime Video presents Sport 2021 event (via The sun): “I’ve seen us beat Norwich, win at Burnley, beat Tottenham at home – because we still beat Tottenham at home.
“I was more than happy when we beat Tottenham because we were on a good race. But I was waiting to see a performance away from home against a team [Brighton] who passes the ball. And, instead, we suffered.
The Arsenal icon was also asked whether he would one day consider being in the Spurs dugout canoe.
His response was quite emphatic however, saying, “That would never happen in a million years.”
