Arsenal are still reeling from Alexis Sanchez’s decision to quit the club for Manchester United.
Sanchez’s interview on joining the Red Devils mentioned a discussion with Thierry Henry on leaving the Gunners, which Arsenal fans took badly and prompted the Frenchman into denying that he encouraged the Chilean to quit.
I know I don’t need to explain this to the majority of Arsenal fans but contrary to speculation at no time did I tell Alexis Sanchez to leave Arsenal. I had no idea he was going to sign for Man Utd until I saw it on the news like the rest of you.

Sanchez this morning sought to back Henry up, and added that he would like to see the Frenchman as Arsenal manager one day.
I want to clarify that Henry never told me to leave the club, it was a personal decision … he LOVES the club and someday it would be nice to see him as the arsenal coach because he loves the club …
