Thierry Henry didn’t hold back in his criticism of Arsenal after their 4-0 defeat at Anfield on Sunday, saying he wanted to get up and leave rather than watch the humiliation continue.
He also said the performance against Liverpool is why players like Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil are not willing to sign new deals.
Speaking on Sky Sports after the game, the club’s record goalscorer said, “It was unwatchable, at one point I wanted to leave. I don’t relate to the team and I don’t think a lot of the fans do.
“That is a problem. The word I have used for a long time is comfort. Everything is comfortable at Arsenal.
“Everyone can stay, you don’t try to find out the player you can be, it’s ok to play well, and if you’re not playing well there’s not the pressure you should have at a big club.
“You are not even competing. It’s on them to change it, but everything is nice and it cannot be like that.”
And on the players who are in the final 12 months of their deals, he insisted they won’t sign becuase of days like this.
“Why would he stay after watching this?,” he said. “After this type of performance? That is why they are not renewing their contracts.
“There is something wrong with Arsenal at the minute.”
At the minute is being kind.
