Robert Lewandowski: This Arsenal legend was a player I liked to watch and take inspiration from


Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski says Arsenal legend Thierry Henry was an inspiration when he was a child.

The 27-year-old will be one of the main attractions during this month's Euro 2016 Championship amid reports that he will leave the German giants to make a move to Real Madrid.

"I watched the national team and I also remember the Champions League [when I was a child]," the striker told UEFA's official website.

"I used to fall asleep a bit in the second half of those matches as it was quite late, but I always wanted to watch until the end. Thierry Henry was a player I liked to watch and take inspiration from.

"It was a real honour more recently when he asked if he could have my shirt after a game.

"I asked if it was for someone else and he said: 'No, it's for me.' That was really cool. I was watching him on TV a few years ago, now he is asking for my shirt."
