Thierry Henry has admitted he hardly recognises Arsenal after a crazy week in the club’s history which culminated in Friday night’s protests outside the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal had decided to join the cotroversial Super League, however after huge public pressure the club withdrew from the project and apologised.
But fans are still protesting outside the Emirates, as they demand the resignation of the Gunners owner Stan Kroenke.
Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has reacted to the latest news, as he told the Daily Telegraph:
“This club belongs to the fans, I love the club and I will support the club until I die, but I do not recognise my club and what happened just now, with them trying to join a league that would have been closed, makes no sense to me.
“They have been running the club like a company, not a football club, and they showed their hand. Maybe it’s a lack of understanding of the core football values and maybe the money was too big of a temptation. But whatever it was, they got it wrong. Badly wrong.
“I was genuinely shocked like most people and couldn’t believe what was unfolding. I have never talked before, but what happened recently made me realise fans, this is your club. It is your club and I’m an Arsenal fan too. I’m proud of what the fans achieved. Not just Arsenal fans, all the fans. The result was a victory for football.”
