Arsenal icon Robert Pires SNUBS Thierry Henry in a list of his best former team-mates as he picks France icon Zinedine Zidane and fellow Invincible Dennis Bergkamp instead

Robert Pires has sensationally snubbed fellow Arsenal icon Thierry Henry when naming the two best players he played alongside during his career – picking Zinedine Zidane and Dennis Bergkamp over him instead.

Pires formed a part of the Gunners' 'Invincible' squad that went the full 2003-04 Premier League season unbeaten, with Henry spearheading the attack for the side.

The former winger also represented France at international level, playing with a host of iconic players throughout the years.

But when asked who were the best players he starred alongside throughout his trophy-laden career, Pires named just two while shockingly leaving out former team-mate and compatriot Henry, who is arguably one of the greatest Premier League players of all time.
