EPL: Thierry Henry reacts to Aubameyang copying his celebration against Tottenham


Legendary Arsenal striker, Thierry Henry, has approved Pierre-Emerick’s goal celebration during their 3-1 win over Tottenham on Sunday.

Aubameyang, who is the captain of the current Gunners, made it 2-0 before replicating Henry’s iconic knee slide celebration.

Henry himself watched from the VIP box inside the Emirates, as Mikel Arteta’s men put up an outstanding display in the North London Derby.

Emile Smith Rowe, Aubameyang and Bukayo Saka all netted before half time, before seeing the game out in the second half.

Aubameyang tucked home Smith Rowe’s cutback and eagle eyed fans were particularly impressed that he chose to copy one of the club’s most iconic moments in celebration.

The Gabonese international knee slid in front of the away fans, in a similar fashion to Henry’s legendary celebration in a 3-0 victory over Spurs at Highbury in November 2002.

“I guess it is the north London derby celebration!” Henry said on Sky Sports, reacting to Aubameyang’s celebration.

“On the day you can do it at your ground, away from home it’s a bit more tricky.”
