Arsenal Legend: Thierry Henry Crowned King of Football In Nigeria

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has been crowned “Igwe” (King) of football in Nigeria after attending a fan event in Lagos Nigeria.

The former Arsenal forward who was donned ‘Igwe’ [king] of football on Sunday in front of thousands of adoring fans got the title even before he came to Nigeria for the event.

Obviously, the term is nothing new when it comes to Henry in that part of the world as Nigerians would usually call him ‘Igwe’ when he scored during his hey days.

With Alex Iwobi currently playing for Arsenal and probably seen as the next idol for fans, the Gunners now hold a huge following in the African country.
