"Thierry, stop laughing": Henry's amusing reaction to Tottenham's loss
The former Arsenal striker was a little bit too happy to see his former rivals lose to Sporting Lisbon
Some things never change, and Thierry Henry enjoying himself with Tottenham as a victim could very well be one of those. The legendary Arsenal striker scored five goals in ten Premier League clashes against the North London derby rivals with the Gunners, including the legendary run in 2002, where he celebrated in such enfactic fashion that it was chosen to be the pose of his statue outside the Emirates Stadium.
Following Tottenham's loss to Sporting Lisbon in the Champions League, Henry, now in a role of analyst for the media, couldn't help but enjoy himself after Antonio Conte's team conceded two goals in stoppage time to lose against the Portuguese giants.
Commentating on Arthur Gomes's goal to give the Portuguese side a 2-0 win, fellow former player Jamie Carragher pointed out Henry might be letting his personal feelings show: "No, Thierry, stop laughing. You are laughing. You are enjoying this".
However, an amused Henry replied he was simply enjoying the quality of the goal. ""I am not laughing. No, I am not [enjoying it]. Put the camera on me. I screamed because of the nutmeg".
Indeed, over the replay Thierry Henry showed once again his appreciation for the 24 year old Brazilian's goal: "I don't care if it was against Spurs. Look at that step over, nutmeg, see you later. Hugo, nutmeg, see you later. 2-0. Bye!". Regardless of the reasons, it remains just another instance of the former Arsenal striker poking fun at his former rivals.
