According to reports in the Times, Henry is fully behind Wenger, his French compatriot, who has been in charge of Arsenal since 1996, despite his own dreams of becoming manager at the Emirates Stadium.
“I thought it was a joke,” Henry said. “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.”
