“When I met him for the first time, I called him Mr. Premier League. Thirteen. This is ridiculous,” he told Sky Sports.

“The trophy we see right there should have his name, people might disagree with this, and I’m not a Man United fan. Thirteen times? This is too much.

Henry highlighted Ferguson’s ability to adapt his style over the years.
