Thierry Henry claims that Zlatan Ibrahimovic is "an extraordinary player" and is glad that he played alongside him at Barcelona in 2009-10.

New York Red Bulls striker Thierry Henry has hailed Paris Saint-Germain forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic as an "extraordinary player".

The duo played together at Barcelona in the 2009-10 season during which they won La Liga.

"Ibrahimovic is an extraordinary player," Henry told L'Equipe. "He is not a player who is found everywhere.

"I played with him [at Barcelona], I appreciate it. He is a very good guy."

Henry left Barcelona in 2010 for Red Bulls, while Ibrahimovic joined AC Milan at the same time.
