Speaking to Soccer Laduma TV, Henry spoke about how Guardiola’s playing style has improved at Man City.
“There was always big talk that playing like that, you can not win in England, our Arsenal side played football and we won in England, Man United played football and they dominated in England,” Henry told Soccer Laduma.
“But now because Pep is winning, people are saying – oh yeah, you can do it. It is easy to say it now, you had to say it when he wasn’t winning, not a lot of people said it when he wasn’t winning.

“Pep, for me, he has been showing that for Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Man City, I don’t think that Pep is trying to change the game, he is trying to play the way he likes to play, and he is not trying to ask anyone else to play a different way.
“I think Pep has been doing what he’s doing for a very long time and you carry on playing that way, it is great for football, I see a lot of Man City fans now because of the way they play,” he said.
