Micah Richards has recalled the time former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry cheekily winked after nutmegging him during a game.

The ex-Manchester City defender was discussing some of the best strikers to have played in the Euros for Match of the Day’s Top 10 podcast alongside BBC pundits Gary Lineker and Alan Shearer.

When asked by Lineker whether he considered Henry his worst nightmare, Richards replied: ‘Yes, he was because he was quick, he wasn’t strong but as soon as you touched him he would go over.

‘He was just annoying, you can’t do anything. I remember one time we were playing and he megged me and then he winked at me and then he was gone. 

‘And because I was an Arsenal fan as well, I was like “ahhh”.’  

Shearer was quick to jump in with a joke at Richards’ expense, adding:  ‘I would have loved to have played against you. 

‘I would have given you more than a f***ing wink!’ 

Both Richards and Shearer were asked to pick their top 10 strikers to have played at the Euros with each opting to choose the same top five.

The two pundits had Jurgen Klinsmann at number five and Gerd Muller at number four.

Henry came third on the list with Marco van Basten second and Cristiano Ronaldo taking top spot.

Further down their top 10 included Shearer himself, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Wayne Rooney, Antoine Greizmann and Ruud van Nistelrooy. 

Both Richards and Henry and Shearer will be pundits for the BBC during their coverage of the Euros this summer with Lineker one of their main presenters.
