Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan did a question-and-answer session on his personal Twitter account yesterday and revealed his long-standing admiration for Arsenal legend Thierry Henry.
The Frenchman is our all-time leading goal scorer, and undoubtedly one of the finest players to ever grace the English game.
When asked by the Premier League’s Twitter account who his favourite ever player from the division is, Gundogan replied that when he was a kid he particularly enjoyed watching Henry…

Either way, it’s nice to see Henry’s talents being appreciated by another fine footballer!
