“Thierry Henry will not play tomorrow for Arsenal. His comments are like any other comments, they cannot help us to win, nor be an excuse to lose. We have to focus on ourselves”
“Thierry Henry has his opinions,” the Gunners boss said ahead of today’s title showdown with North London rivals Spurs.
“He has not found the measurement of the fans’ angriness, of 60,000 people straight away, because he sits in the best seats of the stadium.
“You cannot say they were never as angry as that. Who can measure that, who can compare that?”
Asked whether he felt Henry’s comments, before a game which could see second-placed Spurs go six points ahead of his team, were unhelpful Wenger added: “I’d like not to comment on that and I say to people what I think face-to-face.
