Henry Devestated And Delighted
Thierry Henry cast fresh doubts over his Arsenal future yesterday when he said it was 'great' to hear of AC Milan's interest in him.
Speculation has continued to grow over the last couple of weeks after Henry said 'For now, I am an Arsenal player,' in an interview in Shanghai.
Henry seemed to have dedicated the rest of his career to Arsenal last summer when he signed a 4-year contract.
Since then he has always said 'I am staying at Arsenal,' when asked about his future at the club. Until a few weeks ago, when he made the above comments.
Henry saide: 'I was devastated when Mr Dein left the club. I don't know what happened and I don't want to know.'
When told of AC Milan's interest in him, Henry said: 'That is great to hear. How can it be anything else?'
Henry added: 'As I have said many times, at the moment I am an Arsenal player.
'But everyone knows that a lot of stuff has happened at the club recently that wasn't supposed to happen.
'So the only thing I can tell you is right now I am an Arsenal player but I cannot deny it's nice to hear about Milan.'
Henry went on to talk about David Dein and his feelings regarding the whole situation.
'Although no one is bigger than the club, Arsene Wenger and Mr Dein are really close to being Arsenal,' said Henry.
'So if you ask me if there was one person on the board I would not like to see leaving, I would have said Mr Dein.
'Unfortunately it is out of my hands. I don't agree with what has happened but sometimes that's the way things are. We just have to move on.'
As far as I am concerned there are three ways you can look at this.
The first is that Henry is using to media to inform the world that his intentions are to leave the club for pastures new, without actually saying it.
The second is that he is trying to scare the board and Wenger into bringing in fresh faces to strengthen the squad.
The third is that there is nothing in it and Henry will still be here next season come what may.
