Arsenal fans who have been criticising Arsene Wenger and calling for him to be sacked have had a talking to from club legend Thierry Henry.
Our all-time top-scorer has slammed the way some supporters treated Wenger following the Premier League defeat to Stoke City earlier in the season and the Frenchman completely disagrees with their sentiment.
“I thought it was a joke,” Henry was quoted by the Times.
“You can be upset, I totally understand that. But when I saw what happened at Stoke I was like, ‘That’s totally unnecessary’.
“Fans do have a voice, I totally understand that, but what I saw after the Stoke City game was out of order.

“You can express that you are upset, but to do it in that way was a bit too much. But in the game at the moment unfortunately that is the way it is.”
Considering the strong bond Henry has with us it makes this outburst from the 37-year-old somewhat surprising, although many of us would agree with the former striker’s sentiments.
Many are hoping to see the Gunners legend back at the Emirates Stadium in a coaching role at some point in the future, although that will have to wait until after his punditry career.
Henry has recently signed a lucrative contract with Sky Sports and will be seen as a pundit for the first time when we travel to take on Manchester City on Sunday.
