Thierry Henry says all of Europe fear Real Madrid and Real Madrid fear Barcelona

Thierry Henry has spoken about Barcelona and Real Madrid.

The Frenchman, who enjoyed a fine late-career stint with Barcelona after leaving Arsenal, was speaking on CBS Sports in comments carried by Marca.

Henry was speaking ahead of this season’s Champions League final that will see Madrid face off against Liverpool in Paris at the end of May. Los Blancos have knocked out Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea and Manchester City to make it to the showpiece event.

“All European clubs fear Real Madrid and Real Madrid fear Barcelona,” Henry said. “But I think Liverpool will win the Champions League. They’re stronger than Madrid.”

Henry did, however, back his compatriot Karim Benzema to win the Ballon d’Or over Liverpool’s Senegalese striker Sadio Mane, who’s co-incidentally been linked with Barcelona this morning.

“I still believe that Benzema is ahead, but if Mane wins with Liverpool and they do the quadruple, he’s a pretty strong opponent,” Henry said. Mane, of course, led the Senegalese national team to the African Cup of Nations earlier this year.

“It would be great for Africa but I’m still betting on Benzema.”

And Henry knows a thing or two about elite strikers.

The now-44-year-old provided 51 goals in 123 caps for the French national team and enjoyed a stellar club career that saw him represent Monaco, Juventus and New York Red Bulls as well as Arsenal and Barcelona. He scored 360 goals in his club career.

  1. Ahaha.
    Because they lost one match they werent interested in winning?

    Is he familliar with the fact that Madrid won 5 out of 6 latest clasicos?

    What a word salad. Utter nonsense.

    1. And before that? The 5-1s, The 4-0s?. We don’t just beat Madrid, we humiliate them. Can’t wait for another round next season.

      1. What was before that, 11-0s, 8-2s, 6-1s? We dont just humiliate barcelona, we put them five feet below.

        You think youre only one in world who can cheerypick results?

        Be careful what you wish for, your club is broke and got kicked out of EL this season. With no money to buy better players this IS your future.

        Rudiger is here, when Mbappe comes we will be back to burying business.

  2. Of course Madrid fear us Barcelona, great team with great players, though they won us few Classicos narrowly recently due to injury crisis but we trash the 4 goals to show that the Dream Barca is coming back, just a matter of few years let our lads mature abit nd we the Barca will rule Europe football for years again ❤️❤️❤️ much love Barca. Visca Barca visca Catalonian ❤️❤️

      1. Those catalan delusions come from deep mentaI trauma from all the abuse in CL, from Roma, to Liverpool, to Bayern, to PSG.

        While RM were busy setting records in CL, fcb were busy setting implosion records, what, 9th season without CL?
