Henry: I Kiss The Badge vs Chelsea
In the coming days leading up to the clash vs Chelsea at Ashburton Grove, there has been, and will continue to be, stories flying around about various clashes and incidents between the two clubs over the years. The latest being the recollection of Chelsea's audacious attempt to lure the talisman, Thierry Henry, to the bridge.
Thierry Henry claims he knew that Chelsea made an astonishing £50 million bid for the French record breaker, and admitted that it felt good.
However, the Arsenal captain maintains that he is an Arsenal man through and through and even performs a little ritual to show his love for the red and white.
When asked if he'd heard about the bid he said, 'Yes, I knew that. And it felt great.'
'But I am an Arsenal player and that was that. And every time I scored against Chelsea after that, I kissed the badge to show where my heart lies.'
