Henry is Arsenal’s all-time top scorer, and spearheaded the greatest team the Premier League has seen, Arsene Wenger’s Invincibles.
But, when asked who the best player in England’s top flight was, the France World Cup-winner overlooked the likes of Patrick Vieira for an old rival.
Henry believes Scholes “didn’t get the credit he deserved”, despite the former England man being at the heart of Sir Alex Ferguson’s great sides.
Speaking on Sky Sports a year ago, Henry said:
“He was one of the best, if not the best, that I played against. He could do everything. But unfortunately for him, when he was playing for the national team, people didn’t see it like that.”
“If I had a Paul Scholes in my team, everything would be around him.”
