I have been in both situations as a player where sometimes people didn’t want to play us with Arsenal and we didn’t go really far, and we had a team when we went to the final I don’t think was our best team at Arsenal,” Henry said on CBS Sports.

“I remember when we drew Real Madrid everyone laughed because they said, ‘Arsenal are the team you want’, and we Juve and everyone said, ‘that is a good draw for Juve’, then we played Villarreal, who were a good team at the time, then they aid, ‘it is good to play Arsenal’, then obviously we couldn’t win the final.

I’m just saying, you can never disrespect anyone in Europe.

“There are two teams there who can be cocky – it is Real Madrid and Man City, that is about it. The others, you just take who you can play.”

He added, “Man City are the team to beat still, for me. I know Pep, it not how he’s going to take it, I was just putting it out there.”
