Thierry Henry: Arsenal legend embarrasses Robbie Savage during World Cup coverage
Former Arsenal striker ribbed ex-Leicester City midfielder
Sitting in the studio with Thierry Henry, Clarence Seedorf and Gary Lineker, Robbie Savage might have known he'd be in for a rough afternoon while covering France's win against Honduras.
While that trio have won World Cups, European Cups and League titles, Savage has a single League Cup winners medal in his career.
But that didn't stop the former Leicester and Blackburn midfielder from attempting to get stuck into Henry's Arsenal.
When analysing how a gritty Honduras team could slow down their much more illustrious opponents, Savage compared it to when his Leicester team played Henry's storied Arsenal team.
Savage, known as an irritating opponent who often ended up in the book, asked Henry to agree with him that Henry's Gunners didn't like physical play.
Henry, who won two Premier League titles in north London, brilliantly slapped Savage down, responding 'we managed...' much to the amusement of those in the studio.
Savage took it all in good humour, posting "I was most relieved Clarence and Thierry knew who I was" to his Twitter page.
