[Jamie Redknapp on Thierry Henry] I know from playing against Thierry Henry how good a player he was. His game was built around incredible pace, power, and finishing, not to mention the ability to read the game better than most

[Jamie Redknapp on Thierry Henry] He’d run past you like you weren’t there. For a couple of years he was the best player in the world. Two or three players would try to foul him, but he’d just cut inside and put it in the top corner

[Jamie Redknapp on Thierry Henry] He was so quick, so graceful. It was almost like he could run through a puddle and wouldn’t make a splash. He was that good, it was effortless during the game.

When you’re on the sideline and you have to make that substitution with 10 minutes left. Until you physically have to do it, time in, time out, nobody knows how you are going to deal with pressure

I have seen many great No 2 really fight like No 1. The fact that Mikel Arteta has been working with Pep Guardiola will help to some extent, but he has to do it in his own right. He has great credibility in the game, everyone speaks very well of him , but we will only discover in time how to cope with that pressure, because it is unique

It’s something totally different when you don’t have to make those big decisions
