Thierry Henry comments on Wenger contract & Fabregas situation

Thierry Henry Two

Arsenal legend discusses Arsene Wenger's impact at the club and Barcelona's seemingly available player, wanted by Manchester United and Chelsea.

For Thierry Henry, Arsene Wenger's continued management at Arsenal can only be a good thing and that, despite speculation surrounding the long-reigning Frenchman's tenure in the N5 hotseat, the striker always knew that the boss would renew terms with the Emirates Stadium club.

Speaking to the Sky Sports studio, Henry said that "knowing Arsene, I knew he was going to stay especially after winning the [FA] Cup final. [I know] how much he loves the club. It is a good thing he is staying for another three years."

Henry was also quizzed over the rumours and future of his former Arsenal team-mate Cesc Fabregas, how is reportedly on the cusp of a £40 million transfer to Chelsea.

"Cesc is strong," commented the legendary forward who netted 228 goals and 93 assists from 376 appearances in all competitions with the Gunners.

"I saw him come in at Arsenal at 16-years-old with no fear," he added, noting that his proven adaptability demonstrates that, should he leave Camp Nou then he should have little problem acclimatising to his new club.

"He did it before and it won't be a problem if he is to leave Barcelona. Some teams will come in for you when you are that type of player, especially with what he has done in the past, but I don't know if they will come in now, or what he will do."
