‘Thierry Henry was an inferior player to former Chelsea striker’ – Samuel Eto’o reveals. It’s not Didier Drogba

Samuel Eto’o has claimed Arsenal legend and his former Barcelona teammate Thierry Henry was not as good as former Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka.

Eto’o said: “I think Thierry Henry was not at the level of Anelka.

“Titi was good, but I knew players. I preferred other players. In any case, he was not at my level. The luck or the bad luck that I had me, was not to play for France.

“Those who played in France had plus 70 per cent. It’s not because they were strong, but because France sells them better. They sold them to us and brought them up to our level.”
