Shocked, Giannis receives a message from a French football star!

MVP of the Finals, Giannis Antetokounmpo was finally able to win a champion’s ring. The opportunity for him to receive praise from the entire NBA community, but also from that of general sport. In particular, he received a magnificent message from… a French football legend!

Eight years after making his NBA debut, Giannis Antetokounmpo managed to climb the roof. Winner of Phoenix in the Finals, the Greek joins the circle of NBA champions, having already won the titles of MVP, Defender of the Year and Best Progress in recent seasons. An incredible track record for a player who was seen at best as a long-term project.

He was therefore logically congratulated by everyone, so much his coronation is deserved. By the way, the Bucks wanted to give him a little surprise, by arranging a message from the idol of the Greek Freak. And it is none other than Thierry Henry, the French footballer, who addressed Giannis in a short video!

Thierry Henry : Hello, my big one. I just wanted to congratulate you and say « finally ». I remember you told me that you would one day become a champion and do everything in your power to make it happen. Now you did. I’m sure you realize it’s not how you fall, but how you get up that matters. You did it for your city and your team. They tried to bring you down, but you didn’t listen to them. Now enjoy it, and see you soon champion.

This is a tribute like we don’t get every day! The emotion was in any case palpable on the face of The Alphabet, clearly moved after the message of the 1998 world champion. He did not hesitate for a second to reiterate the adoration he felt for the front. -centre, in his youth:

It’s crazy. It’s really crazy. I wanted to be him growing up, when I was younger, because my dad played soccer. I wanted to be him so badly. I fell in love with basketball, but this post means a lot to me. As he said, we did it together.

Praised on all sides, Giannis perhaps had the most personal message of congratulations with that of Thierry Henry. It’s not every day that your hero praises you!
