Thierry Henry is happy for WZE. “I am content, happy for him. It’s deserved. He elevated himself. I gave him the captain’s armband, but it was evident. I hope he stays in the senior team for his entire career. He deserves it. When he plays for PSG, he’s not far from being the best, excluding the monster (Mbappé) that I won’t mention. The goal is for it to rise and stay.”
On the footage of his PSG teammates surprising him at the moment of his call-up. “It’s an image that sums up Warren. I would have tried to run, jump, move around the bed. Not him. He stayed, didn’t shout, got smothered, came out, calm, just red, said congratulations, and left. That’s Warren. I found it funny but at the same time, it sums him up. He’s mature, measured.”
