Henry: Name the Premier League trophy after Ferguson

Thierry Henry has suggested that the Premier League trophy should be renamed to honour Sir Alex Ferguson’s achievements.

In a special Sky Sports programme celebrating 25 years of the Premier League, Henry poured praise on the competition’s greatest ever manager.

Nine different managers have won the Premier League title, but only three have done so more than once.

Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho have both lifted the trophy on three separate occasions, but both languish far behind Ferguson’s 13 at Manchester United.

Henry believes the trophy should be renamed in his honour.

“When I met him for the first time, I called him Mr. Premier League. Thirteen. this is ridiculous. The trophy we see right there should have his name,” he said.

“People might disagree with this, and I’m not a Man United fan. Thirteen times? This is too much.

“His ability to change his staff, bring a new number two and a new voice helped.

“I think he knew what he wasn’t good at and so he selected coaches to do the stuff he wasn’t good at.”
