Saturday was about Manchester City’s 1-0 win over Inter Milan, but Jack Grealish briefly turned the focus on Thierry Henry after the match.

Grealish and teammate Kyle Walker were being interviewed by a CBS Sports panel consisting of Henry, Jamie Carragher, Micah Richards and host Kate Abdo when the city winger wondered how Henry would fare against the defender.

‘Off the left, do you reckon you’d take him on?’ Grealish asked Henry of Walker.

‘In my prime?’ All day!’ Henry responded, as the CBS crew burst into hysterics.

Carragher jokingly suggested that the pair race one another, while Henry – who retired in 2014 – shook hands with Walker and conceded they’d never get their answer.

Jack Grealish and Man City beat Inter Milan in the Champions League on Saturday night

Henry won the Champions League with Barcelona in 2009, and it was a similarly special day for Grealish and Walker as they led City to a triumph over Inter.

Grealish told BT Sport he was ‘awful’ in the match but lasted 90 minutes as Rodri found the breakthrough in the 68th minute.

Walker, meanwhile, began the match on the bench but entered in the 82nd minute for John Stones as City saw out the match. 

City’s win gave them the first treble since rivals Manchester United won the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup in 1999.
