Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has named Arsenal’s record goalscorer Thierry Henry as the best player in the Premier League.

The Frenchman scored 228 goals for the Gunners during his two spells there and impressed a young Rooney.

“I’d have to say Thierry Henry. From the ages of ten to 16, watching him the Premier League was amazing and he scored all different types of goals - free-kicks, volleys, left foot, right foot,” the Old Trafford star told ShortList.

“He was entertaining. He’s probably the best centre-forward, I think, to play in the Premier League.”
