Some people don’t like Thierry Henry. Henry may be my favorite player ever because of the way he played in Barcelona’s 2008-09 season, so I’m biased. Sue me. The people that don’t like him are silly.

Today he gave a speech as Arsenal unveiled a statue of him outside its stadium. He shed tears. Fun fact: many men aren’t man enough to shed tears.

Here are some other traits he exhibited:

Candor (Robin van Persie was “not easy to deal with” when he first came to the club). Introspection and self-criticism (admitting he wasn’t either). Humility (“I can only admire what he’s doing.” False. You played better for Arsenal. You could point that out. They’re unveiling a statue of you for a reason.)

He is intelligent. He is perceptive. He is a free thinker. For some reason this is threatening to people.
