Thierry Henry savages Jamie Carragher with brilliant social distance joke on return to Sky Sports' Monday Night Football

THIERRY HENRY took no time at all to have laugh at Jamie Carragher's expense as he returned to Sky Sports punditry following two years away.

The Arsenal legend is back in the UK, after leaving his post at CF Montreal last month for 'personal reasons'.

And upon his return, the 43-year-old quickly eased back into things.

The studio set-up has noticeably changed during Henry's time away, with pundits now two metres apart for social distancing purposes.

And Henry didn't miss this chance to lightheartedly mock Carragher.

The Frenchman said: "I'm happy to be here, two meters away from Jamie like in the game."

Henry scored nine times against Liverpool during his illustrious career.

And these efforts included a stunning hat-trick in 2004, in a game during which he bamboozled Carra.

The Reds legend, 43, took it in good spirits, replying on Twitter 'It's a long night', followed by two laughing emojis.

During his television appearance, Henry was eager to point out that he still sees his future in management.


He said: "I'm definitely a coach out of work. It's been a difficult season.

"I'm still enjoying coaching, I think this is my path."

Henry guided CF Montreal to the MLS play-offs for the first time since 2016 during his stint in North America.

But prior to this he endured a nightmare spell at AS Monaco, winning just four of 20 games in charge before he was fired.

He was recently strongly linked with becoming the new manager of Bournemouth.
