But now he has opted for his former teammate at Arsenal Dennis Bergkamp when asked whom the best player he ever played alongside.
CBS Sports host Kate Abdo asked Henry via SPORTbible:
“Who is the best player you played alongside?”
The 44-year-old swiftly responded: "Dennis Bergkamp.”
Abdo then pressed further, asking the Frenchman: "Not Messi?”
"Dennis Bergkamp. Is it quickfire? Dennis Bergkamp.”
The Non-Flying Dutchman won two Premier League titles and two FA Cups alongside Henry.
Earlier in the year, Dennis Bergkamp was inducted into the Premier League Hall of fame following the likes of Roy Keane, Frank Lampard, Alan Shearer, Eric Cantona and Thierry Henry.
The former Dutch international played a major role in Arsene Wenger's three Premier League titles during his 11-year spell with Arsenal.
The 52-year-old has been fondly remembered for two great goals he scored against Newcastle which was voted the best in the first 25 years of the Premier League.
And the other against Leicester City, where he mesmerized a defender and finally bagged a hat-trick in their famous win at Filbert street.
