Hector - The Henry moment that sticks

Hector Bellerin has plenty of Thierry Henry memories - but there is one that stands out.

The right back was one of the first players to pay tribute to the Arsenal legend following his retirement in 2014.

Having owned an Henry shirt when he was younger, seeing the striker play first-hand was special enough for Bellerin. And then it got better.

“The highlight for me was the first time I came to Arsenal,” the 19-year-old told Arsenal Player. “He came back on loan and scored against Leeds in the cup. That night was an unbelievable night.

“I was at the Emirates and how the atmosphere was when he just came on the pitch and then when he scored, the whole stadium just went crazy. That for me is a moment that is going to be stuck in my head.

“He’s a legend with all the goals he scored and then playing against him in the summer when we played the New York Red Bulls was a pleasure and like a dream to play someone like him.

“When he comes to the dressing room when he’s over here, how he is with the young players, that’s really nice of him. I just want to wish him good luck with whatever he does now in his life.”
