Thierry Henry wants the Premier League trophy to be named after Sir Alex Ferguson
Thierry Henry haa suggested the Premier League trophy should be named after Sir Alex Ferguson, to honour the Scot's unprecedented domestic success with Manchester United. Ferguson, 75, retired from football in 2013 after winning the last of his 13 Premier League titles as Manchester United manager. In a special programme for Sky Sports marking 25 years since the league's inception, Henry insisted the United legend should be immortalised on the Premier League trophy.

The trophy we see right there should have his name," said Henry. Henry appeared on the anniversary programme alongside former Manchester United captain Roy Keane and Kenny Dalglish, who won the title with Blackburn in 1995.

The Frenchman, who turns 40 today, hailed Ferguson's ability to continuously adapt and rebuld his team, as well as is coaching staff. "His ability to change his staff, bring a new number two and a new voice helped," said Henry. "I think he knew what he wasn't good at and so he selected coaches to do the stuff he wasn't good at." Thierry Henry has accused of Arsenal of being 'predictable' Credit: Getty Images Henry recently slammed his former club Arsenal for 'stagnating' under Arsene Wenger. Speaking on Sky Sports' new programme, The Debate, the Frenchman, who rejected a coaching role with the club last year, suggested Arsenal have not remedied the defensive issues that have dogged them in recent seasons. "I watched the game and I could tell you what was about to happen. Every time Leicester had the ball I thought they were going to score and every time we had the ball I thought we were going to score. "I've seen it so many times: are you always going to score four and concede three? At one point you're going to get found out."
