Carragher pays tribute to Henry after Sky exit with hilarious throwback picture

Jamie Carragher has led the tributes to Thierry Henry after he announced his Sky Sports exit.

Henry confirmed he was leaving Sky after four years on Monday to pursue his dream of becoming a manager.

The former Arsenal striker has been at the World Cup as Belgium boss Roberto Martinez’s assistant and will now focus his efforts on the training pitch full time.

Carragher took to Instagram to bid farewell to Henry, who he called "gaffer" with a hilarious throwback picture.

Henry famously touched Carragher’s leg live on air after it was announced Brendan Rodgers had left Liverpool back in 2015.

Carragher looked to the camera in shock with the pair hilariously recreating the incident last season.

Fellow pundit Gary Neville also paid tribute to Henry on social media following his departure from Sky.

Presenter David Jones added: "We will miss you @ThierryHenry. Great guy, and and an absolute gent. It’s been a pleasure. Good luck!"

It remains to be seen who will replace Henry, who was believed to be pocketing around £4m-a-year.

Former England and Chelsea defender John Terry is a potential replacement, reports the Mail.

Carragher is set to return to Sky Sports for the start of next season following his spitting shame last term.
