Sandra is very important to her son

In an interview with CBS Sports Golazo, Thierry Henry surprised Marcus as Thierry is Marcus's favorite uncle. 

During the same interview, Thierry gave a shoutout to Sandra. He said he has known Marcus's mother Sandra for a long period of time. 

He said Sandra is outstanding. Thierry recalled a time when he was in Monaco and Sandra was there with Lilian

He said they were always at their place and Sandra was always cooking for him and taking care of him. 

Thierry knows what type of family they are and what type of mom Marcus has. Thierry further said Marcus would not be who he is without his mother. 

Marcus then said his mother is going to be very happy because every time he does an interview, Sandra sends him the interview. 

He said his mother loves Thierry and every time she sees him, her eyes get full of tears as it brings back a lot of memories. 

Marcus said his mother is very important to him and she is always calling him, making him laugh. 

He also said that he is very similar to his mother as they have the same laugh and the same character. 

Her ex-husband influenced their son

Her ex-husband, Lilian, is the one who introduced their sons to football. Marcus said his father has influenced him in a great way. 

He said he knows who his father is, what he represents, what he fights for, and what he stands for. 

He gave him the lessons that any normal father would give to his son and that is you have to live and grow in respect and what you represent in the society as a black man and prepared him for the difficulties he might go through in his life. 

He also joked and said he didn’t get his sense of style from his father. 

His father always comes with the hat whereas he likes to look fresh off the pitch and has a unique sense of style. 

During an interview, Marcus revealed that the best advice his idol Thierry Henry gave him was that when you go on the pitch you have no friends and you go there to kill, not to have fun, and not to play around. 

Thierry played against his father, Lilian, when he was in his prime. They asked Thierry and Marcus who would win between Marcus and Lilian

Marcus said that was not even a question as he is his son so he will let him pass. 

Thierry looked surprised at Marcus's answer and questioned his answer with an expression. 

Then Marcus laughed and said his father might hurt him even though he is his son but despite this, he will still choose himself. 

Thierry then said when Lilian was on the field, it didn’t matter if it was family or not, he would bring his opponent down and he was just a force of nature. 

Marcus would only win against his father in one situation and that is space behind as he thinks his father would have struggled.
