Wenger: Henry Left With My Blessing

Arsenal manager Arsene wenger has broken his silence regarding the transfer of Thierry Henry to Barcelona.

There has been no comment from Arsene Wenger since Henry's transfer was announced on Friday evening.

Wenger and Henry have spent almost 15 years working together. It was Wenger who brought Henry into the Monaco first team at the age of 17. They parted ways soon after when Wenger moved to Japanese club Nagoya Grampus Eight. Four years later Henry moved to Juventus, where he was, to be frank, a complete flop.

After one season at Juve Wenger brought Henry to Arsenal, where he went from being a reasonable winger to one of the best players to have played for Arsenal.

It would seem that the two have worked together for the last time though.

Speaking to Arsenal.com Wenger said: 'Thierry has been tremendous for us since he arrived in 1999.

'He has excelled both as part of a team and individually. In short, he has become an Arsenal legend.

'Personally, I would like to thank Thierry for the huge contribution he has made to the Club's success over the past eight years.

'To his great credit, he has mixed skill and style together with an appetite for winning.

'This wonderful combination was integral to our historical 49 games unbeaten run and all the honours he won at Arsenal, together with Thierry becoming the Club's record goal scorer - an achievement which in my view is unlikely to be surpassed.

'It was Thierry's decision to leave Arsenal but he goes with my blessing. On behalf of everyone at the Club, we wish him the very best for the future.'



Vital Arsenal would like to echo Arsene Wenger's sentiments. It's impossible to measure what Henry has done for our club both in terms of his performances and in terms of marketing off the pitch.

So it's with a heavy heart that I bid farewell to a true Arsenal legend

Au Revoir Titi.
