Thierry Henry At Barcelona And Arsenal Move Onwards And Upwards

by | 25th, June 2007

THIERRY Henry was allowed to say goodbye on the Arsenal website. He did so in candid style. Would Arsene Wenger stay? Would Arsenal allow that question to hang unless they knew the answer?

Dear Gooners:

After Henry used Arsenal’s official website on Saturday to reiterate his feeling that Wenger’s commitment to the Emirates Stadium was uncertain the club will not permit the drift to persist. There are strong hints of an announcement that the Arsenal manager has signed a £15m-plus, three-year contract extension that would tie him to north London until 2011.

It could be said Wenger has never had it so good. Much has been made of supposed restrictions on his budgets inflicted by the £400m Emirates Stadium construction but in reality the Gunners are wealthier than ever.

Game on…
