Leo Messi is for a lot of the best player of the history of the football. For others, there is more discussion with Diego Armando Maradona or Peeled, but what is used to to keep is the fact to include him between the candidates to occupy this place. It is odd that an important personality of the world futbolístico do not add to the '10' in a list like this, but Thierry Henry has wanted to be the exception.

The ex leading French of the Arsenal or of the FC Barcelona participated in a podcast called 'The Greatest Game' and there had to do a 'top 5' of historical players. Jaimie Carragher, ex of the Liverpool, was the one who asked him that it chose to five footballers to play a partidillo of five against five. A curious way to ask after him his players preferred.

The one who was one of the best forwards of the world during several years had doubts, but finish appointing to four footballers that are used to to appear in all the rankings and to another surprise that anybody is used to to take into account. This player was Michael Laudrup, that for Henry "would have to be".

"It would say you that I Peeled, Maradona, Cruyff, Beckenbauer... And Michael Laudrup would have to be. I have not understood never the of Laudrup. It has been a player very subestimado... When speeches of football caviar, his name would have to be here", ensured the ex star 'gunner' on the ex midfield player of the Barça and of the Real Madrid.

It played and it won it everything at the side of Messi

It is something odd that for this 'pachanga' of which speaks Carragher, Henry did not choose to Messi, with the one who played during three seasons. The Frenchman coincided with the one of Rosary between the 2007 and the 2010 and won LaLiga, the Champions League, the Glass of Rey, the two Supercopas and the World-wide of Clubs. The '10' culé led to this legendary team that did with the sextete.

Henry lived like Messi taught him to the world of the football the one who was the best, but this seems that it was not sufficient so that the French include him in a 'top' like this. Perhaps, the fact that the Argentinian have not withdrawn still has influenced in the one of Them Ulis, since the five footballers that chose withdrew does a lot of years.
