Thierry Henry names Taribo West as the toughest player he faced in his career
Posted by badgeKingdomKings on 2


Former Arsenal striker, Thierry Henry, has picked ex-Super Eagles defender, Taribo West, as the toughest player he has faced in his career.

Henry revealed this while answering quick-fire questions on CBS Sports’ In The Mixer, during Tuesday night’s Champions League analysis.

When asked the toughest player he has faced, the Frenchman replied: “Toughest as an indirect opponent? Or just a guy you hated to play against?”

The 44-year-old was asked to name both. And he replied: “Paul Scholes.

“For the direct opponent, I would go back in the days and say Taribo West.

“Because (at Auxerre), they did man-marking. He followed you everywhere, even in the dressing room.”

When Henry was asked which player he enjoyed playing alongside, he replied: “Dennis Bergkamp“.

Henry came up against West while he played for Monaco.
