Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger insists that club legend Thierry Henry is in no position to speak about the level of disillusionment among fans, claiming that the former striker makes his judgments from the “best seats” at the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal lost 2-1 against the premier league rivals Swansea City and didn’t get the good of Leicester and Tottenham dropping points.
Arsenal legend Thierry Henry claimed in his column for The Sun that he had “never heard the Arsenal supporters as angry” as in midweek.
“They were less patient than I have ever known, booed one of the manager’s substitutions and groaned every time a pass went astray or a tackle was lost,” Henry added.
But Wenger fired back at Henry, says his fellow Frenchman is not best placed to comment.
“Thierry Henry has his opinions. He has not found the measurement of the fans’ anger, of 60,000 people, straight away,” said the Arsenal boss, speaking on the eve of Saturday’s clash with bitter rivals Tottenham, who are second.
“Because he sits in the best seats of the stadium.”
