PUMA Football has released an hour-long video of Thierry Henry hosting an Insta LIVE chat with Sergio Agüero and Nikita Parris for Part 3 of Football Real Talk with Henry.
Agüero, who replaced Henry as the Premier League’s all-time leading overseas scorer, shares details of growing up in Argentina and his experiences as a young footballer trying to make a name for himself. He also gives insight into working with Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.
In the second part of Football Real Talk with Henry current Lyon star and England international Nikita Parris opens up about the challenges she has faced adapting to life in Lyon, and how the women’s game is changing people’s perceptions.
Throw in some great insights from Henry’s own career and you have an incredible hour of football real talk.
Henry on Agüero: ‘The first time I saw you, I took a look at your thighs and I said what are those.’
Henry on managers: ‘Arsene triggered my brain by telling me to ask myself the right questions. How can I help the player who is on the ball? Pep started to make me understand how big the field is, how the ball travels faster than the player.’
Sergio Agüero: ‘When I walk in the street or when I go back to Argentina, people are surprised, because they think I’m small because of the TV.’
‘I started when I was 15. This is how it happens in South America. I think that the clubs in South America put the young players with the pros for them to adapt quickly, but it was so tough. I was so tired when I came home, I had dinner and went directly to bed.
‘When I was a kid, I was identifying myself as Michael Owen. He was small and showed me that I could play in the Premier League.’
Nikita Parris: ‘The view of the women’s game has changed massively. The women’s game is now really competitive and that’s what football is about. Competition.’
‘The biggest pressure I had to face in my life was to please my dad. To put a smile on his face.’
