I can’t imagine how big Eto think of himself for him to even say, Henry is not on his level.

One day e fit even say Aubameyang better pass Henry

grin grin agree with u on this one.... Benzema wasn't even as good as Henry was... Henry still remains the best forward France ever had ....the only player that will match him will be mbappe ... Benzema was terrible from 2009 to 2019 ...

After playing as top 9 with some of the best at club level, Eto no touch one European Golden Boot.

In Spain, how many Pinchichi/La liga top scorer him win?

What of La liga Player of the Year?

During Arsenal unbeaten in 2003/2004, Henry topped goals and assists chart.

Henry voted PFA Player of the Year twice
Premier League Top Scorer 4 good times
Twice nominated for FIFA World Best

And him get mind say Henry no dey him level

Well, he’s right cos Henry is bigger and better






Eto'o is just an attention-seekiing ex-footballer.

Despite his ridiculous statement, how many UCL goals did he score in his career?

He was just an elite footballer. Period.

You credited Henry for winning Euros and world cup.
But went ahead to say UCL is a team achievement and anybody can win it.

So are you saying world cup and Euros are individual achievements and has nothing to do with the team?

If you claim anybody can win UCL, then why are players like Aguero, Ronaldo and Ibrahimovic without it?


On Pedro and Ibrahimovic, i don't know what metric you are using to arrive at "better"
But Pedro is a winger and scored a lot of goals including important goals and assists to win several trophies. Including EPL, WC, Euros, UEL, UCL, La Liga
Ibrahimovic is a striker and has more goals than him, that's all.
You can't just put it vaguely that ibra is better than Pedro

Henry had 6 assists during 2003/04 unbeaten season. he was number 14 on the list. I'm pretty certain many of what you typed too would be wrong if I fact check them all

There was a season Henry had top scorer and top assist in the EPL ...cant remember tho

Eto'o is jealous. Thierry Henry was the king of England premiership back then.
Even Van Nistelrooy won't say what Eto'o said.

I agree with everything u said except the average arsenal side. Do u know Henry played with one of the best arsenal teams ever. A team that had viera, Gilberto, pores, bergkham, Campbell and many more.
No Sir.. By 2006, players like Viera, Bechkamp and other have left..
So Arsenal was an average team 2005/2006 season.

When Thierry Henry was playing as arguably the most popular and finest striker in global football, where was Eto'o?

Was there anytime Eto'o carried Barcelona or Inter Milan as the definitive player but Thierry Henry was the face of the premiership during his heydays...

Thierry Henry was at the EPL the level Ronaldo and Messi were at La Liga...

Henry was better than Eto'o hands down. Even that same Fenomeno did not win UCL or score in its final yet he is better than Eto.

Henry was nominated for World player & Ballon dor final 3 times and came second twice and third once. Eto was only nominated once and he came third.

Henry won:
-World cup
-Euro 2000,
-Fifa confederations Cup (where he scored against Eto's Cameroon in final and won player of tournament)
-UCL - Eto may have scored in that final but Henry was instrumental in that UCL campaign as well with 4 knockout goals.
-Henry dragged an average Arsenal side to UCL final with several scintillating displays.
-Henry's 2006 world cup campaign to the final is also notable for great performances against Brazil and Portugal.

On a personal attribute level, Henry was faster, more skillful, could pass the ball better, could score free kicks regularly, assisted more than Eto. Both have similar goal sense.

And Suarez, Lewandowski & Shevchenko are better than Eto'o. Rooney and Aguero are on his same level.

Note that Henry's prime was 2000 - 2006 while Eto's prime was 2004 - 2010. By the time Henry was playing with Eto in Barca he was already winding down his career. At Henry's prime he was generally considered arguably to be the worlds best striker vs Fenomeno.

Rooney and Aguero in the class of Eto? Eto didn't move to Barca by mistake or lobbying ok. Eto was at Madrid and Madrid loaned him to Real Marloca, at Marloca, he played against Madrid and showed them his class that was how Barca went for him. Watching only English Premier league is the sole reason one can put Rooney and Aguero in the class of Eto.

Also comparing Henry with De Lima (R9) shows disrespect and nothing more. The first world best R9 won was at Inter that was where he was called fenomeno. Do you know that R9 played at Barca? Maybe you started watching him during his days at Madrid. In the interview Henry granted, he didn't compare himself with R9, both are not even compared before FIFA and anything that has to do with the leather round-object game.

I watched Eto at his prime. Despite having Ronaldinho, Xavi, Deco and young Messi for support and playing for the best team in Spain then, he was still outscored by Valencia's David Villa and Villareal's Diego Forlan for pichichi. Put 2002 - 2004 prime Henry in that same Barca side, he would be European golden boot winner all through.
