Micah Richards tells Thierry Henry "Hall of Fame is getting to your head"

Micah Richards has ripped into Thierry Henry over the Arsenal legend’s fashion choices.

When both appeared on CBS Sports on Tuesday night alongside Jamie Carragher, everyone apart from the former Barcelona forward was wearing a suit and tie. Instead, Henry wore a brown blazer and blue shirt.

This caused Richards to take aim at Henry’s dress sense live on air. When presenter Kate Abdo quipped: "Casual Friday on a Tuesday is it Thierry?", the former Manchester City defender could not help but chime in.

Henry responded: “Casual Friday because I don't know where my tie is. I have to be honest." But Richards was quick to joke: "Honestly, Hall of Fame is getting to your head."

The Frenchman then fired back to Richards, bringing up the fact his former side Man City face Real Madrid in the second-leg of their semi-final clash on Wednesday. "No, the big game is tomorrow,” he said. “Let's see how relaxed you're going to be about it tomorrow."

Henry was inducted into the Hall of Fame – as well as Newcastle legend and all-time Premier League goalscorer Alan Shearer – in April 2021, with the pair becoming the first members to be inducted.

The former Gunners striker said of the honour: “To be inducted alongside Alan Shearer as the two first inductees into the Premier League Hall of Fame is more than special. When I was young, I was just trying to make sure I could get a pair of boots and now we're talking about the Hall of Fame. During my career, I wanted to play hard and make sure I was fighting for the cause, because that's all the fans want to see.”

Richard, Henry, and Carragher are often found on the American TV channel's punditry team for Champions League games. Last night the trio was on hand to dissect Liverpool's 3-2 semi-final win over Villarreal.

Going into the tie 2-0 ahead, the Reds found themselves in a spot of bother at half-time at the Estadio de la Ceramica owing to goals from Boulaye Dia and Francois Coquelin.

But Jurgen Klopp brought on Luis Diaz at half-time and the Reds jumped into life. Midfielder Fabinho put Liverpool back in front on aggregate with a low strike. Then marquee January signing Diaz and Sadio Mane added an extra two goals to seal the Reds' place for the final in Pairs.
