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!”
