Thuram pays tribute to 'best uncle' Henry

Thuram paid tribute to the former Arsenal star, saying:

"I’d like to thank Thierry Henry - maybe he’s going to see this - for all the advice that he gave me, and I hope that this is only the start."

The Inter Milan forward then confirmed that he speaks more to Henry than his famous father, Lilian Thuram, saying:

"He's like my best uncle; he's the uncle that's here for me, to help me in good moments and bad moments. He always tells me the truth; today, I'd like to take the time to thank him because if I'm here, it's because of him. "

Thuram stars in first season with Inter

Henry will no doubt be proud of Thuram's performance for Inter Milan after joining the club on a free transfer this season.

He stepped up big time following Romelu Lukaku's and Edin Dzeko's departures, scoring 12 goals and dishing out seven assists in Serie A this season, per the BBC.

His biggest goal of the season came on Monday when Inter faced AC Milan at the San Siro. They knew that a victory over Milan would give them a 17-point lead at the top of the table and secure the Scudetto for the first time since 2021.

Thuram helped make that a reality, scoring Inter's second goal in the 49th minute.

Thuram celebrates after Scudetto win

Sports Brief recently reported on Thuram's post-match celebration after his team won the title.

He removed his Inter jersey and put the kit onto the AC Milan corner flag after the final whistle.

Thuram waved the flag in a moment of sheer joy, sending his teammates and fans into a frenzy.
