‘It’s good that Thierry Henry believes in me’

Alexandre Lacazette celebrates against Stoke

Alex Lacazette has taken advice from Arsenal legend Thierry Henry since taking his first steps in English football.

Lacazette has three goals in two appearances since returning from injury to take his tally for the campaign to a respectable 12.

The first season in a new country can be difficult - even Henry himself needed time to adapt - but Lacazette has had words of encouragement from our record goalscorer.

“Yeah, I talked with Thierry when I arrived and I talk with him regularly,” said Lacazette.

“He told me England is not as easy as it is in France, he said it is different.

“But he trusted and believed in me, and if Thierry can believe like the coach believes in me, that is good.”
