- Thierry Henry, who never lost to Spurs, couldn’t help but fool his old rivals
- The comment was made when Henry was asked about Arsenal’s enemies
Thierry Henry gave a hilarious response when asked about his old rivals Tottenham, pretending not to know who they are.
The Arsenal legend, who spent more than eight successful years in north London, is well known for the intense rivalry between the two clubs.
Henry never lost to Spurs during his time with the Gunners and even famously took the Premier League title at White Hart Lane during the club’s invincible season in 2004.

Henry celebrates with Patrick Vieira after winning the Premier League at Spurs in 2004
The statue of the Frenchman outside the Emirates stadium even shows his famous celebration after he scored a sensational goal against Spurs at Highbury in 2002.
Last weekend, he worked for Amazon Prime Video’s French coverage after Rennes lost 2-0 to Reims ahead of their Europa League Conference game with Spurs.
A fellow guest on Amazon Prime said: “It’s the second consecutive loss for Rennes. It is something they should be concerned about, and they will also meet Tottenham in the Europa League at Roahzon Parc on Thursday.’

The former Arsenal legend responded: ‘Sorry, who? I do not know them.’
The two-time Premier League champions last played in the league during his loan spell with Arsenal in 2012, but his loyalty to the club is clearly as strong as they’ve ever been.
Since his retirement in 2014, Henry has spent much of his time working as a pundit for English and French television.
Henry’s comments caused much laughter in the studio, as the Frenchman smiled cheekily through the camera lens.
Tottenham were ultimately unable to beat Rennes on Thursday evening as they had to settle for a 2-2 draw.
