They are revered over here, both of them.
Look at the press from Gerrard being rested on the weekend sure.
I remember the Sun printing a picture of Rooney's foot for people to pray over during the "Metatarsal" world cup...

Petit is amazingly vitriolic in those quotes, it shocked the crap out of to me reading it tbh.
I can see his point though, and these 2 are probably great friends so why would he not want to see his friend revered ?

....If Ireland won a world cup....how many of that team would have statues built for them d'ya think ?
I'm thinking the whole shagging team myself
.
if there was one statue erected it'd be Zidane though

then Deschamps, then Dessailly, then Blanc etc i reckon

he's at the Musee Grevin though (the french equivalent of Madame Tussaud)

He's been reading the French media's side of things.

Emmanuel Petit: arrogant French don’t deserve Thierry Henry

Retired France midfielder Emmanuel Petit has criticised his country for its “hypocritical and cowardly” treatment of former Arsenal team-mate Thierry Henry and suggested it may have been better if they had been “overrun” by Germany in the second world war.

Petit played alongside Henry in the team that won the 1998 World Cup on home soil and spent three years at Arsenal from 1997-2000. His comments come in the wake of Henry’s announcement that he is to leave New York Red Bulls after four and a half years in the MLS.

Arsenal’s record scorer has not yet confirmed if he will retire from professional football, stating he would “take the next few weeks” to decide on his next move.

Asked for his favourite memories of his former team-mate, the question sparked an outburst from Petit about the perception of Henry in the national media.

“In England, they’ve built a statue of Thierry,” he told French website sports.fr.

“That means a lot. He is revered there. This bad image (in the French press) of Thierry Henry, it annoys me.”

“What can we reproach Henry for? His handball against Ireland? He helped France qualify for the World Cup in South Africa. He has done nothing.

“France is hypocritical and cowardly. Sometimes I think that if we’d been overrun by the Germans, we’d be better run.”

Petit continued his rant by comparing Thierry Henry’s treatment by the French media to Wayne Rooney’s in the English press.

“Wayne Rooney is not hated in England, even though he was not always right in his boots on the field and off. Thierry Henry never had a bad move on the pitch and there were no stories in his private life,” he said.

“He’s not hated but he’s certainly not loved. He got screwed by the French press after his handball and has since not spoken to the French media.

“In France, he has no collusion with the press, so what? Perhaps because he was not smiling when he scored for les Bleus! Well, that’s what I hate in this country.

“I have great difficulty with the French, I have never seen such arrogant, smug, lying and hypocritical people.”

Petit made 85 appearances for Arsenal and scored nine goals before joining Barcelona in 2000. He finished his playing career at Chelsea, retiring in 2004.

Henry gave an interview to French sports magazine L’Équipe as part of the publication’s 100-page special on the Arsenal legend. Speaking about his future, he expressed a desire to stay in football and said that he “would like to see Arsenal win the Champions League”, while Arsène Wenger said this week that he will “certainly” return to the club one day.

Fiar play for the French for taking a stand against that cheating twat.

Mr Little can fuck himself too.

It's almost comical. I was certainly under the illusion/delusion that the Germans had indeed over run France in three days or so (Holland, they say surrendered by telephone).

Just can't resist repeating that old joke the English liked to spout that the Red Coats tunic was that colour in an attempt to conceal bleeding wounds...exactly the same reason the French wore Brown trousers...

Must admit being a Man U supporter Henry wasn't someone I relished us facing, bloody great player. The French have done very well with their intercolonial footballers they got Zidane and Henry along with a long list of excellent players... England on the other hand got Luther Blisset and Emile Heskey...John Barnes admittedly could play a bit..
