Arsenal legend Thierry Henry is being savaged on Twitter by Arsenal fans for advising Chile international Alexis Sanchez to move to Manchester United.
In Twitter posts, fans called Henry all sorts of names for being ‘unpatriotic’ to Arsenal.
He was blamed for Arsenal loss at Bournemouth after the coach disclosed that he got a pep talk from Henry before the match, that undermined Arsenal’s fight for a top four place.
The posts also showed Henry fraternising with several Man United players, including fellow Frenchmen Pogba and Martial.
One fan even wanted Henry statue at Emirates pulled down. Another fan based in Lagos, Nigeria, said if he had gotten wind of Henry’s ‘betrayal’, he would have slapped him when he visited Lagos for a Guinness event.
Henry, who had a stellar career at Arsenal before he left to join Barcelona and later going to the United States to play in the MLS, is now a pundit on Sky TV.
Here are some of the tweets attacking the former player:
This season alone, Thierry Henry has attempted to motivate Kane prior to the NLD, given Bournemouth a pep talk before playing us and advised Alexis on leaving the club. Regardless of his exceptional playing career, he’s really tainting his legacy at the club since

Alexis Sanchez: ”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."

Thierry Henry cost us our closest shot at winning the UCL. The idiot left us for Barcelona citing lack of a UCL trophy at Arsenal SD reason for leaving. Today as a pundit, he chides us for not winning the UCL.
The bald idiot is a bastard.

Instead of Thierry Henry to be using his wide range of contacts and fame to be convincing talented players around the world that Arsenal is the place to be
He is busy advising the ones here to leave.
Had taken Alexis leaving on the chin, Henry act hit me in the gonads
