Thierry Henry, a legend in Arsenal Football Club have revealed that he missed Kanu Nwankwo of Nigeria and Dennis Bergkamp of Netherlands who were his teammates in Arsenal after he left for Barcelona.
The fierce striker scored a total of 228 goals for the London Club, thus emerging as the Arsenal's all time record goal scorer. However, he achieved the record in partnerships with Kanu and Bergkamp during those memorable years.

Henry, now the head coach of MLS side, Montreal Impact made the following statements in an interview. He said:
At Arsenal, I could do whatever I wanted on the field.
It was much easier, because either (Dennis) Bergkamp or (Nwankwo) Kanu were nearby. They remained in the centre, and I could be pulled back or on the flank. I never thought that I would leave Arsenal, but still did it.
In Barcelona it was harder, there Bergkamp and Kanu were no longer there, I had to get used to the new style of the game and conditions. It took a lot of time, but it turned out I adapted in 2009, when we won everything that could be won.
