Henry Slams Arsenal After Super League Exploits

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry says he does not recognise the Gunners anymore following their attempt to join the European Super League.

The north London outfit were one of 12 clubs, six from the Premier League, who announced their intention to join a breakaway league last week.

However, the announcement was met with plenty of backlash, which eventually saw all six English sides withdraw their participation 48 hours later.

Henry was quick to criticise his former club and praised the supporters who protested against owner Stan Kroenke at the Emirates Stadium over the weekend.

"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," the France legend told The Telegraph.

"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.
