On Henry “His mindset was just so elite. He told us about a day that Arsenal were behind and he wouldn’t allow his team to lose before running past everyone to score,”

“When he speaks to your face and you see in his eyes how passionate he is for the game and how much he wanted to win it shows why he was such a great player.

“You dream of trying to emulate a career like his. As a young player that just inspires you and that’s why scoring against Wolves meant so much to me.”

“I was so excited to get it. It’s stuff you dream of and to think of the legends who have had it is such an honour. I liked the number growing up because some of the best players in the world have worn it,”
