‘I nearly cried’ - Thierry Henry reveals why his goal against Leeds on his Arsenal return in 2012 was the best of his career
Despite all the wonder goals he scored during his successful career, Thierry Henry has ranked the FA Cup strike against Leeds in 2012 as the one that gives him the most joy
However, Montpellier manager Der Zakarian did not receive Henry’s criticism kindly and questioned the Frenchman’s coaching ability.
The Armenian manager mockingly referred to Henry's ideas as "nonsense" and attacked his brief time as Monaco's manager.
"The guy works for the FFF and criticises French football. It’s nonsense! It’s easy to criticise the league when you’re the manager of the France U21 team.
“He won 4-0 twice but against whom? He hasn’t beaten anyone. If he wins 5-0 against Spain or Italy, I’ll say well done."
Prior to moving to the MLS to take over as Montreal's manager, Henry managed Monaco for just 20 games.
