Thierry Henry has revealed why he left Arsenal and frankly,his excuse sucks! These footballer must think the fans are fools with some of the things they come up with.Henry is one of my very favourite players,but truly, he plays on our intelligence by saying something like this.
Henry revealed that he left Arsenal cos he thought Arsene Wenger was leaving theclub.Such Bull.The simple thing would have been to go to Wenger who Thierry Henry was very close to ,and ask him,boss are you leaving? Every one knows the two had a wonderfully close relationship,so Henry should try another one.Now he is retired and trying to show Arsenal fans that he oves them more than anything.Yes he did and does love Arsenal,but the truth is he left for his own selfish reasons.Arsene Wenger does not own Arsenal does he? If you love the club,must you leave just because your manager left? Imagine if all the other player acted the same way as Henry.
He would earn more respect if he simply said,he loves Arsenal but wanted to experience another league and play with a great team like Barcelona before he retires.
French superstar,Henry, who retired from the game at the end of last year after a glorious career, told Bein Sports in France that he cried openly after reluctantly coming to the decision to leave.
"I'd never considered leaving Arsenal. But I was 29 years old and in form," he told the TV channel.
"And I did not know if Arsene would be staying."
Henry, a World Cup and European Championship winner with France in 1998 and 2000, admitted that he wept when saying goodbye to the London club.
"It was not easy and when I left I cried. I'm not ashamed to say it. I'm a competitor and I had to leave."
Arsenal were just two years into their trophy drought when Henry left in 2007 - and while he went on to become a Champions League and Liga champion with Barcelona, the Gunners went without silverware until the FA Cup last May.
Henry never expected to win so many new medals with Barcelona, however, having been told in no uncertain terms on his arrival that his £16m purchase would not make him any more than a bit-part player.
"When I arrived at Barcelona, [Pep] Guardiola told me that I was the fourth-choice striker and I would not be starter," Henry said.
"I accepted the challenge and I fought, and competition makes you increase your level. People talk about luck, but you need to create your own.
"When you work, you got the reward at the end."
Henry won the treble of La Liga, Copa del Rey and Champions League in the 2008-09 season with Barcelona, as well as several other trophies before moving on to the New York Red Bulls.
Since retiring he has taken up a job as a pundit with Sky Sports, and is also working towards his coaching badges.
