Thierry Henry's priceless reaction to being asked if he would ever play for Tottenham, he almost walked off

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry was left disgusted and was hilariously ready to walk off the CBS Sports studio after being asked if he would have played for Tottenham.

Henry created a legendary legacy after his first spell at the Gunners, with the 45-year-old Frenchman enjoying incredible success under Arsenal icon Arsene Wenger.

The former Arsenal striker lifted two Premier League titles and two FA Cups with the club, as well as being an integral part of the famed ‘Invincibles’ side.

Henry, who returned to Arsenal for a brief loan spell in 2012, was in the CBS studio alongside Micah Richards, Jamie Carragher and presenter Kate Abdo.



When asked by Abdo if he could have played for Spurs, a disgusted Henry responded: “Please, Spurs? I’m leaving.

“No, no, no. Joking aside, I wasn’t actually joking on that one.

“No, I had the opportunity and I declined.”


Responding to Henry, Liverpool legend Carragher asked: “Spurs came in for you?”

Abdo quizzed Henry further and asked: “For triple the money?”

Henry remained cryptic in his response to the CBS presenter and other panellists, with the ex-France international adding: “Exactly for what you said and I said ‘no.’”


Carragher wasn’t ready to let the conversation die out and wanted to know the rival club that came in for Henry.

“Who came in for you, Manchester United? It’s got to be a rival of Arsenal,” Carragher said.

Responding to Carragher, Henry said: “No, I won’t say. You can say whatever you say, I will say no all the way.”

Fans loved Henry’s response to the question about playing for Spurs and how the former Barcelona and Juventus striker was “disgusted” by the idea of it.


“Love it, LOL. Thierry Henry was visibly disgusted by the question. He’s Arsenal through, and through,” one fan said.

Someone else added: “He was disgusted by the question.”

A third Twitter user wrote: “That’s my KING right there!”

While one fan posted: “My king for a reason.”


And a fifth tweeted: “I don’t even have to watch this to know he said no, Henry is a real one.”
