Wayne Rooney pays tribute to Thierry Henry after the former Arsenal striker retires from football
Wayne Rooney has taken to social media to add to the tributes to Thierry Henry after the striker announced his retirement from football.
The 37-year-old confirmed his decision to hang up his boots on Tuesday after leaving MLS side New York Red Bulls earlier this month.
Arsenal’s all-time record goal-scorer is now set to take up a punditry role with Sky Sports – and Rooney took to Instagram to underline his respect for the former France international.
Rooney posted the picture above and wrote: “Would like to wish Thierry Henry all the best in his retirement from football.
“He’s one of the best players to ever play in the Premier League and a player I looked up to.
“I’m sure with all his knowledge he will do a great job at Sky Sports!”
