Arsenal fans turn on each other over Henry, Sanchez drama

Thierry Henry is widely regarded as an Arsenal legend, but he landed in some hot water from fans over the last few days following Alexis Sanchez’s exit.

The Chile international ended speculation surrounding his future by joining Manchester United in a swap deal that involved Henrikh Mkhitaryan moving to the Emirates.

Sanchez’s demeanour in his final few games for Arsenal attracted criticism from the crowds.

However, the majority did not want one of their best players to leave, particularly midway through the window.

In a lengthy Instagram post, Sanchez seemed to suggest that Henry had helped encourage him to join United.

“I remember today, a conversation I had with Henry, a historic Arsenal player, who changed club for the same reason and today is my turn.”

The remark sparked anger among some Arsenal supporters, so much so that Henry had to issue a denial via Twitter.

Sanchez also took to social media to clarify the comments, insisting that the Sky Sports pundit did not push for him to leave.

The 29-year-old added that he hopes to see Henry as Arsenal manager in the future.

The fans have now given their say on the drama, with many defending their club legend.
