Manchester United legend, Wayne Rooney, has named former Arsenal star, Thierry Henry as the Premier League’s greatest ever foreign import.

Rooney also said that departing Manchester City striker, Sergio Aguero is ‘right up there’ with some of the finest foreign imports to ever grace the league.

But the former England captain maintains that Henry who stars for the Gunners is the best ever overseas player on these shores.

“Aguero has been fantastic and is certainly right up there,” Rooney told a press conference on Wednesday.

“But if I was asked to choose then I’d probably say, Thierry Henry was the best foreign player

“There’s a few in a pack just behind him who are right up there like Aguero, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Dennis Bergkamp and Eric Cantona.”

Henry, a former France international, is considered one of the greatest strikers of all time.

He has also been debated as the greatest player in the history of the Premier League.

The Frenchman was the runner-up for the FIFA World Best of the Year in 2003 and 2004 and was runner-up for the Ballon d’Or in the former year.
