Arsene Wenger upset with Thierry Henry remarks, hits back at club legend


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says club legend Thierry Henry was wrong in describing Wednesday's Emirates atmosphere as "as angry as never seen before".

The 66-year-old came under heavy pressure after the Gunners lost 2-1 at home, missing a golden opportunity to move closer to leaders Leicester City.

But the Arsenal boss says the Frenchman is not in a position to make such remarks from his executive box.

"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 of the stadium."

Meanwhile, Wenger says he is not concerned after news that Petr Cech will miss upcoming key games for the club.

"If you look at the win rate of Ospina it is very good as well. I'm not worried at all," he said.

"I have complete confidence in David and I'm not worried at all on that front."
