Thierry Henry's Lagos Revelation

The "igwe of football" has given an honest revelation in Lagos, Nigeria. In his confession, the France legend Henry says former Nigeria international Nwankwo Kanu is the most technically gifted African player he ever played with at Arsenal.
He made this clear at his unveiling as Guinness Nigeria PLC ambassador for the ‘Made of Black’ campaign which took place at the Landmark Event Centre, Victoria Island, Lagos, on Sunday.

Henry and Kanu were both signed by Arsene Wenger in 1999, and spent five years as teammates, winning two Premier League titles (2002 and 2004) and two FA Cups (2002 and 2003) together.“First of all",he began when giving his views of African teammates at Arsenal." let me say Lauren (Etame Mayer, former Cameroon international) was very good and I love Lauren to bits. But if you go down to technique, I have to give it to Kanu,” Henry confessed. 

Kanu later moved to West Bromwich Albion in 2004, while Henry left Arsenal in 2007.
