Thierry Henry will make his Sky Sports debut this weekend as an analyst for the Premier League tie between Manchester City and Arsenal.

The Gunners and Premier League legend was snapped up by the broadcasters at the end of last year after an impressive performance covering last summer’s World Cup with the BBC.

Henry will be on-site at the Emirates Stadium in the Sky studio alongside Graeme Souness.  Sky have effectively put their worst pundit next to the former France international to make him come across like a genius.

Sky have had a couple of adverts building up Thierry Henry’s debut over the past couple of months, including this advert from current Sky pundits praising him:

Thierry Henry spent eight seasons with Arsenal between 1999-2007 and a further couple of months on loan during the 2011-12 season, scoring 175 goals in 258 Premier League appearances, helping the Gunners to the Premier League in 2001-02 and again as part of the ‘invincibles’ of 2003-04.

He was also a three-time winner of the FA Cup with Arsenal before moving onto Barcelona where his honours included two La Liga titles and the 2008-09 UEFA Champions League.

Henry was part of the French squad that won the 1998 FIFA World Cup and Euro 2000.
