'Henry was the best I've ever seen in that role'

Dennis Bergkamp always had a special connection with Thierry Henry - but what was it like seeing our record goalscorer at the peak of his powers, week in, week out?

Speaking exclusively to our In Lockdown podcast, our former Netherlands international explained just how good Henry was.

"I always said it's a team game and in those teams you need certain players who can make the difference," Bergkamp said. "You had those players at the back, who don't want the team to concede goals and you have those players up-front. 
"There were players who could finish it off... Wright was one of those players, Anelka was one of those players but Henry was maybe the best player in that role that I've ever seen. 
"It was so easy to have a connection with him because on every level he can be the best. He was the best at a certain time so he was easy to play with."
