ICYMI, Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has spoken out against the club he supports: Arsenal.
Henry, 38, believes Arsenal’s fans are upset with the current three-game losing streak. Like, super upset.

Arsenal’s all-time leading goalscorer said he had “never heard the Arsenal supporters as angry as they were at the Emirates on Wednesday night” after the Gunners lost to Swansea City to fall six points behind leaders Leicester City in the Premier League table.
Well, Arsene Wenger has responded to those “shots fired” by Henry. Safe to say he isn’t best pleased.
“Thierry Henry has his opinions,” Wenger said. “He has not found the measurement of the fans’ angriness of 60,000 people straight away because he sits in the best seats in the stadium.”
Wenger is, of course, stating that when Henry is not working as a pundit for Sky Sports he is up in the box seats at the fancy Emirates Stadium. Fair enough, I mean, the dude does have his own statue outside the Emirates.
Remember, though, that Wenger brought Henry to Arsenal from Monaco as a youngster and helped nurture him into one of the greatest strikers the world has ever seen. He also allows Henry to come in and help train some of Arsenal’s academy teams while he continues to take his coaching badges.
