He may be getting paid more money than the rest of Sky's employees put together (okay, not quite) but Thierry Henry's punditry gig is not going very well. The former Arsenal man's style of uppity analysis has not been well received since he jumped on the good ship Sky at the start of the year and he really outdid himself last night.
Speaking after Javier Hernandez scored the only goal of a the Madrid derby, Henry bizarrely criticised the Mexican for his celebration.
What I don’t like is that he celebrates like he has just won the World Cup. It’s a tap in. Turn around and celebrate with Ronaldo.
Fair enough Thierry, sure it's only a Champions League quarter final against your city rivals you you haven't beaten in seven games this season.
To be fair to the Frenchman the World Cup comment was probably more of a throwaway line but his point that Hernandez owes everything to Ronaldo is equally bizarre.
It's fair to say Henry's comments have not gone down particularly well.
Thierry Henry is trying to convince the world that an assist is the same thing as a goal - but only when Ronaldo does it.

All a bit weird those Thierry Henry comments about Hernandez. Late winner on CL derby game, so why not celebrate..?

Thierry Henry has lost the plot. Berating Hernandez for celebrating, says it's Ronaldo's goal and Hernandez should have turned to him!

Henry genuinely giving out about Hernandez's over the top celebration and calling it 'Ronaldo's goal'? Are you having a laugh!

Christ, Henry's criticism of Hernandez's celebration is truly pathetic.

I think Thierry Henry was a fantastic footballer but as a pundit i think he's hopeless. Slating Hernandez for celebrating a goal #childish

Think Henry has been very harsh on Hernandez. The lad has just scored a last minute winner in a massive derby, has every right to celebrate!

I've sat back & watched Thierry Henry be boringly passive as a pundit for Sky but his criticism of Hernandez borders on the ridiculous.
