Thierry Henry Reacts To Wenger’s New Two-year Deal

Former Arsenal striker, Thierry Henry, has said Arsene Wenger has to win the Premier League title again, after he signed a new two-year deal with the club on Wednesday.

Henry who is not surprised by the contract extension, believes “only time will tell” whether the decision is right or not.

He however challenged his former manager to end the club’s 13-year wait to be champions.

“I said two weeks ago he was going to stay and I wasn’t wrong,” Henry told Sky Sports News HQ.

“People were talking to me about announcements today, but the announcement would have been if he was leaving.

“But he is not leaving, the board have assessed the situation to see if it was the best for the club. There is nothing new for me or at Arsenal. For 21 years – and now the 22nd and 23rd – he will be here.

“As an Arsenal fan, and as a guy who had Arsene as a coach and have maximum respect for him, I’m happy to see him at the club. But time will tell (if the decision is correct).

“They finished the season strong, although they have done that before. Raising yourself for the FA Cup final, to beat one team on one day is one thing. To do it over 38 games is a different story.

“Everyone is waiting for the title; the club, the players, the fans and Arsene himself.

“That’s what I want to see because raising your game for one day is one thing, but everybody is waiting for that to be done over 38 games.”
