Henry de­fends Ar­se­nal fans

Lesotho Times - - Sport -

LONDON — Ar­se­nal legend Thierry Henry ( pic­tured) has backed the Gun­ners fans who laid the boot into man­ager Arsene Wenger fol­low­ing the loss to Liver­pool.

Wenger saw his side suf­fer a 4-3 de­feat to the hands of Jur­gen Klopp’s men and boos rang round the Emi­rates at the final whis­tle.

But it could have been worse for Ar­se­nal and Wenger as his side dra­mat­i­cally col­lapsed con­ced­ing four goals in just 17 min­utes be­fore claw­ing their way back into the game.

Gun­ners fans have been in­creas­ingly in­fu­ri­ated at the lack of sum­mer sign­ings and their frus­tra­tions boiled over at the full time whis­tle as they di­rected a cho­rus of boos at the man­ager.

And Henry, who is a pun­dit for Sky TV, be­lieves they had ev­ery right. He said: “The fans didn’t have a go at 4-1, they sup­ported the team.

“But at the end they are frus­trated with another bad start to the sea­son.

“You have a lot of things to take into con­sid­er­a­tion but the bot­tom line is they have lost again at home.”

The Gun­ners legend added: “All sum­mer we’ve been told we have money, we will spend. The sea­son starts and we can’t com­pete with other clubs. What is the truth?”

“It looks like play­ers don’t want to come to play for Ar­se­nal foot­ball club. It seems like it is dif­fi­cult to at­tract play­ers.
