Henry: Arsenal will not miss Adebayor
Considering how Arsenal dealt with his departure in 2007, Thierry Henry will not be surprised if the Gunners move on to bigger and better things after Emmanuel Adebayor’s exit.
Henry would also admit it was close-friend Adebayor who easily took over his mantle during the 2007/08 season but insists Manchester City’s new signing will not do much damage to Arsenal with his exit.
While other former Gunners remain skeptical over Arsenal’s future success, the biggest of them all is adamant there are more trophies on the way.
Arsenal’s all-time top goalscorer stresses the going with not be smooth without the Togolese forward – especially after being hampered with Nasri’s injury – but he is well assured that Wenger and his men may even be parading the Premier League title come next season.
‘It’s not going to be easy without Adebayor, obviously, and what happened with Nasri was unlucky, but I still believe they can win the League,’ he said, speaking ahead of Barca’s Wembley Cup pre-season showdown with Spurs on Friday night.
‘That is always my feeling about my old club. It won’t be easy because there are teams who are doing it every time, but you never know.
‘I remember when I left everyone was saying it wouldn’t be the same, but they ended up having a great season and nearly won the League.
‘It can happen this year. I know everybody is saying this and that but in my heart I will always talk like that.’
Henry added that Wenger has the know-how when it comes to proving critics wrong and his policy at the club should not be doubted.
Arsene and Arsenal have proven so many times they can win without spending a lot of money.
‘People talk about the top four but the only thing that matters to me is who is going to be top and I know that’s how Arsene sees it as well.’
Arsenal will move on to bigger and better things with or without Adebayor. There’s no club like The Arsenal.
TH we love you. Arsenal blood still flows in your veins. If you would consider coming back we would love it! Our club has not been the same since you left!
A true legend
A true legend and a true Gunner. Top class him and Bergkamp were and are.
I have faith in this team, a team wins championships, you don’t win them by individuals alone. This team will surprise a lot of naysayers this year.
Hahah Randy- you should almost keep a post up of what people are saying (bashing) this team at the start of the season. I would love to go back and look at some of the quotes once we win the cup.
So long Titi, you’re a legend.
Now, do us one final favour – encourage Wenger to go to Barcelona!
I see no gun after TH’s leaving, because he was the king of Aresenal’s strikers. But I believe Arsenal will gain more trophies again after Adebayor’s leaving.
Titi follow up with Arsenal (knowing abt Nasri’s injury) stil shows he still got his heart at Arsenal. Speaking out to Fabregas to remain in Arsenal shows he has his best motives at heart. We miss you titi!!
Long live Igweeeeeeee!( Means king in Igbo Language (Nigeria))
