Thierry Henry and Sir Alex Ferguson are both legends of the game in their own ways, but judging by their behaviour today at Wimbledon the two really don’t get on.
The Arsenal legend and the former Manchester United manager were sitting inches away from each other, but looked like they were doing their best to ignore each other.
At one point it looked as though Ferguson was going to try and engage the King in conversation, but Henry was having absolutely none of it.

Given the history between Arsenal and Manchester United – especially during Henry’s time at the club – it’s hardly surprising the two aren’t best of friends.
Henry is still heavily revered at Arsenal, and deservedly so. The amount he achieved for the club during his lengthy stay at Highbury was phenomenal, and he is unquestionably up there with the best footballers of all time.
Ferguson is also unfortunately up there with the best managers of all time, but that accolade obviously hasn’t made Henry any more inclined to talk to him.
