Henry said: “For me Steven Gerrard is one of the best midfielders in the world without doubt.
“His was a fantastic performance in the FA Cup final.
“He’s a great guy and, when he is in tune, Liverpool are in tune and there is nothing you can do about him.
“When he is not in tune their team struggles and that’s without any disrespect to the rest of their players.
“You have to admire him. He puts his foot in and he can play as well.”
