Henry: Keep Our Feet On The Ground
Arsenal's Champions League match winner Thierry Henry, has warned the rest of the team that the job is far from done.
Henry scored an incredible solo effort in Madrid last night, that sent the 3500 travelling Gooners into orbit, but the skipper warned “We must keep our feet on the ground'
Speaking directly after the game, Henry said,
“We must keep our feet on the ground and not get carried away, it is the better way to start the game at Highbury. They have a great team and they can turn things around. I have seen so many things in football in person or on TV so we have to stay calm and focused and see what we can do.
“I said after the Inter game and the Roma game, if you don't go through then that sort of memory is for when you retire. The most important thing for me is to just go through.
“We need to keep calm and see what we can do at Highbury because they are capable of doing whatever.
“It might be the same kind of game there but nothing has been done. This is a good result but as far as I am concerned we are not there yet.”
“This was a team effort,” he said. “The most important thing when you play football away from home in the Champions League is to play as a team and not be scared.
“Tonight we showed some great composure. Even under pressure we were trying to play the ball on the ground. Therefore it is a bit easier for me. But football is a team effort no matter who you are and what you do.”
