Thierry Henry Explains Controversial Neymar/Lionel Messi Comments
Ex-FC Barcelona superstar Thierry Henry has cleared up his recent comments on Neymar and Lionel Messi, for which he has seemingly received criticism.
Sport recently published quotes from the Frenchman that seemed to deride Neymar, after many believed the Brazilian left the Catalan giants to step out of Messi’s shadow.
Henry was believed to have insisted that in order to do so, Neymar should, in fact, try another sport, but the former Arsenal and Barca man has now cleared the air.
The Frenchman explained that he was not taking aim at the 26-year-old Neymar with his comments, suggesting that what he said was taken out of context.
Henry, a former teammate of Messi, scored 49 goals and assisted a further 29 strikes in 121 matches for the Catalan giants.
