You can’t speak of the greatest foreign player in England without mentioning the name Thierry Henry. Arsenal fans worship him all over the world and fans of the opposite teams love what he did during his playing days and when he arrived in Nigeria a few days ago, he was given a new title in recognition of what he did for English football.
The Arsenal legend after a press conference with the media team and Guinness Nigeria, was dressed in an Igbo attire and was given a chieftaincy Title “Ogbuagu Henry’.
This is equivalent to ‘Igwe of football’ in Lagos where he was to meet the ‘Be a Front Row Fan’ winners for the ‘Guinness Made of Black’ programme. He also watched the West Brom v Manchester United EPL game at Landmark Event Centre, Victoria Island, Lagos.
Henry also participated in the cooking of Jollof rice and didn’t do so bad.
The 40-year-old Frenchman retired from football in 2014 but remains Arsenal and France’s all-time leading goal scorer as well as being one of the icons in French football.
