The former French international, living in Cameroon as part of a project with a brewery company of the place, along with Patrick Mboma, has made his choice among the icons of Cameroonian football he loves most.
When Thierry Henry, in a press conference in Yaounde Thursday as part of a football match organized by a brewing company of the place, is called to reveal his crush among the different glories of Cameroonian football, he lets go without blinking, Smile to the corner that « Samuel Eto’o is for [him] the best player in Cameroon. He is my favorite. We have two straight triplets together, Barcelona and Inter, goals in the Champions League final. I do not know what people think about it here or not. I played with Samuel. He is an exemplary teammate, an outstanding player « .
Although in the company of Patrick Mboma, with whom he collaborates in the same project, he was somewhat surprised by his response, not without chambering the former Parisian passage.
Indeed, Thierry Henry wrote the most beautiful pages in the history of Arsenal, before meeting at Fc Barcelona, where he rubbed the Cameroonian goaleador between 2007 and 2010. They participated together in the fabulous year 2009 Blaugrana , and their historic sixfold: Champions League, Spanish Championship, Spanish Cup, European Supercup, Spanish Supercup and World Cup Clubs.
It is therefore difficult for the former New York Red Bulls player to give up on such an important odyssey, experienced in addition, with the most famous African footballer of the last two decades. « I saw it, lived it, heard it. He always trained hard. He had never balked at work. And then, it’s still a talented player, Chelsea, Barça, Inter, Cameroon … It is unavoidable, not only for the continent, but it is a legend of world football. Once again, be proud of this Cameroonian, « adds Henry.
