Thierry Henry was operating as a commentator for Amazon Prime to speak about Ligue 1. On Sunday he watched Lionel Messi make his debut for PSG.
It’s the move of the summer and Henry was as surprised as anyone when Messi came on and was applauded by the whole stadium, not just the PSG away fans.
“When Messi came onto the pitch, everyone was shouting his name,” said Henry. “The last time I saw something like that was with Iniesta, all the stadium chanted his name.”
Messi spoke to Henry after the game on the pitch as pictured here.
