Thierry Henry is not getting much love from the Arsenal faithful for the strange comments he made on Sky Sports after yesterday’s game against Crystal Palace.
The Frenchman made his name as a superstar footballer at Arsenal before leaving for Barcelona to the shock of many fans in the summer of 2007.
Ever since his retirement from football, Henry has taken up a new role as a pundit on Sky Sports while also being employed as the assistant manager of the Belgium national team.
The ex-striker had one of the most controversial moments of his punditry career on Thursday as he claimed that there was division in the Arsenal dressing room, based on how the team celebrated after Alexis Sanchez scored.
“There is a division in the team. He is asking them to come. ‘Why are they not coming? Don’t you want to celebrate?'” Henry said
“You’re not here for Alexis Sanchez, you’re here for Arsenal. Arsenal scored. Go and celebrate. Whoever does it (scores), we don’t care about that, go and celebrate with your team-mate.
“Maybe we are reading too much into it, but I noticed it. Sanchez made me notice it. It was like he thought he was alone.”
And it is safe to say that most of the fans on social media do not agree with Henry’s point…
Thierry Henry is honestly he most awful pundit of all time. Ashamed that he represents us on sky.

Henry is so bad as a pundit. Tries not to be bias towards Arsenal so he makes up shit like team unrest but he'll never have the balls to say Wenger needs to go.

I love Henry as a player but as a pundit he can be cuntish at times last night was a great example he spent more time talking about alexis's celebration and ozil and Sanchez's contract situation than about the game itself really disappointing from him especially
