Thierry Henry Savagely Trolls Jamie Carragher With Dig At His Defending

Thierry Henry marked his Monday Night Football return with a hilarious dig at Jamie Carragher's defending.

The Arsenal legend was back as a Sky Sports pundit after two-and-half-years away and - sat socially distanced from ex-Liverpool star Carragher - Henry produced a trademark deadly finish early on.

"Happy to be back!" he began. "Happy to see Jamie - two metres away from me, like in a game...". Before the pair exploded into laughter.

"It's a good early touch, Thierry," said presenter David Jones, while Carra gamely took it on the chin.

Henry was arguably the most fearsome forward of the Premier League era. And while Carragher was a top centre-back, he wasn't the quickest and often struggled to get anywhere near Arsenal's rapid and skilful No 14. At least he wasn't alone there.

Despite that, the pair formed a bond as pundits when analysing games on TV.

Henry grabbing Carragher's knee in reaction to the news that Liverpool had sacked Brendan Rodgers in October 2015 - and Carra's instant reaction - went viral at the time.

As well as being praised for his hilarious jibe at Carradona, fans on Twitter were quick to exclaim at how little the 43-year-old Henry seems to have aged.

The clean-shaven Frenchman looks alarmingly similar to how did in his playing days, during which he scored a club-record 228 goals for Arsenal, plus 51 goals for France during a career which he won pretty much every major trophy on offer to him.

Henry recently left the Montreal Impact managerial job, explaining that he found it incredibly hard to be separated from his family during a time of heightened travel restrictions due to the pandemic.

The striker hung up his boots in 2014, after a stint with New York Red Bulls.

But he still had enough left to burn past Carragher one more time, as the pair prepared to preview the Premier League clash between Wolves and Liverpool.
