Thierry Henry was involved in a heated verbal exchange with an Arsenal fan following his side’s 3-2 defeat to Swansea at the Liberty Stadium, The
At the final whistle, the on-loan Frenchman urged his teammates to encourage those Gunners fans who had made the trip to South Wales. Arsenal’s defeat was their second consecutive league loss following a defeat against Fulham at Craven Cottage and one supporter angrily voiced his dissatisfaction at the Gunners performance. Henry gestured at the fan and seemed to invite him towards his direction, whilst urging him to get behind the Gunners.
Henry is the club’s all-time record goalscorer and has made a two month loan switch back to the Emirates Stadium to help out Arsene Wenger. The 34 year old was once Arsenal captain and came off the bench for his first Premier League game in five years, but will not be happy with how it ended. Henry confirmed that he had not been subjected to excessive abuse from the fan, but walked backwards for around ten yards looking directly at the fan.
The Gunners took the lead in South Wales and thought they had snatched a point with Theo Walcott’s sublime chip. Swansea took 16 seconds to go back down the other end and get the winner and Arsenal are now four points behind fourth place Chelsea in the Premier League. Arsenal face Manchester United next Sunday and Henry could start after impressing in the FA Cup against Leeds last Monday and against Swansea yesterday.
