In some exciting news, Arsene Wenger has confirmed that the king, Thierry Henry, has indeed taken on a coaching job with the Arsenal Youth Academy.
During the press conference ahead of the Crystal Palace clash, the boss also condemned the racism incident by a group of Chelsea supporters at the Paris Metro.
Wenger claims club legend could become future Arsenal manager.
Thierry Henry is among the Premier League’s all-time goal scorers having scored 175 goals in the competition in Arsenal colors. Since retiring from professional football in December last year, Henry has taken on a job as a pundit at Sky Sports. However, what has been on everyone’s lips is whether the 1998 World Cup winner with France will take on the management job at Arsenal during the post-Wenger era.
Rumors of Henry being at the front of the line to replace Wenger at Arsenal have run riot, especially after the 37-year old took on a coaching role at Arsenal’s Youth academy earlier in the week.
Oh the joy!
Gaffer denies Atletico Madrid interest in Cazorla.
A couple of days ago we ran an article on Atletico Madrid’s interest in Arsenal’s ambidextrous midfielder Santi Cazorla. This was after established Spanish journalist Guillem Balague revealed that Diego Simeone’s side were confident about signing the Spaniard, despite being 30-years-old.
Arsene Wenger has come out and rubbished the claims however, insisting that the Spanish Champions haven’t made an inquiry on Cazorla’s availability. Furthermore, the boss insisted that Cazorla’s future is committed to the North London club, despite having only 18 months left on his contract.
Do you think Cazorla should extend his contract?
Wenger condemns racist Chelsea fans.
A section of Chelsea supporters were captured on camera racially abusing a black passenger in the Paris Metro following their Champions League clash against Paris Saint-Germain. They were chanting “we’re racist and that’s the way we like it”, something that has been not only an embarrassment to Chelsea FC but to English football as an entity.
Speaking ahead of the match against Crystal Palace, Arsene Wenger came out to condemn the incident, labeling it as unfortunate, pathetic and dreadful. Although Chelsea have since suspended three supporters identified to have been involved in the incident, European governing body UEFA has released a statement insisting that they can’t hold the club to account because the incident occurred away from Parc des Princes – PSG’s stadium.
We’re tired of attracting attention for all the wrong reasons, say no to Racism in football!
