Twitter Thread Explains Why Thierry Henry Is 'The Most Overrated Striker In History'

Twitter Thread Explains Why Thierry Henry Is 'The Most Overrated Striker In History'

A football fan has created a Twitter thread in an attempt to prove Thierry Henry is 'the most overrated striker in history'.

Henry is often regarded as one of the Premier League's greatest players and was one of the world's top stars during his time at Arsenal.

But Twitter user @OdoiSZN20_ has compiled a thread of 'only facts and no opinions' to show the Frenchman was overrated in his prime.

The thread goes on to show vital Champions League games that saw Arsenal eliminated from the competition, with Henry missing vital chances in all three ties.

His stats in cup finals are also brought up in comparison to former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba.

Henry's scoring record in finals for the Gunners is poor, failing to net in all nine finals.

Henry left Arsenal in 2007 and swapped North London for Spain, signing for Barcelona.

The thread criticises him for that move and claims he tried to 'piggyback' off Lionel Messi and Samuel Eto'o, two of Barcelona's best players in their Champions League winning campaign of 2009.

Do you agree with the thread or do you think it doesn't do Henry's career justice?
