Former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry firmly believes that the club can respond from their 4-0 humiliation away at AC Milan on Tuesday and has called on the Arsenal fans to help the team, arsenal.com
The Frenchman completed his second spell with the club in Milan and left Arsenal under a cloud of disappointment following their poor performance in the Champions League. Henry made a good impression during his brief loan spell at the Emirates Stadium and scored three goals before his return to MLS side New York Red Bulls. The Arsenal all-time record goalscorer has issued a reminder for the fans that some of the lows can immediately turn to highs and the team need support from the crowd.
Henry said: ‘”Even the generation before that won the Double in 1998 or 1971, they had some very bad moments. So that is what I would like to say to the fans: do not forget that. It was not always nice and pretty, you have to remember that we had some times where we just wanted to go home at the end of the game. The difference is how this team can react and I think this team can do that. We realise it is going to be a hell of a task but who knows? The Sunderland game is just around the corner so we have to go there and win.’
The 34 year old continued: ‘If you are an Arsenal fan then you are an Arsenal fan, that’s the way it is. Once a Gunner you are always a Gunner, you can’t change. I am sure the fans will understand that they have to stay with the team. We all need to be together because it’s the same when the team is winning and also when you lose.’
