Even Arsenal fans take to Twitter to lambast Thierry Henry for Chicharito comments

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry's comments criticising Manchester United loanee Javier Hernandez's celebration for Real Madrid were not well received.

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry was critical of Real Madrid striker Javier Hernandez's celebration for the club on Wednesday night - and even fans of the Gunners have taken to Twitter to criticise him.

Henry told SkySports that Chicharito should have been more thankful to teammate Cristiano Ronaldo, who laid on the pass for his winner against Atletico Madrid.

It was the first goal Hernandez had scored for Real in months, and has single-handedly rescued his loan spell at the club. The striker missed two chances earlier in the game, and would have been the target of criticism rather than adulation had he not bagged the late winner to send his side into the semi-finals.

Henry felt Hernandez should have celebrated with his teammate rather than running off 'as if he had won the World Cup'.

The former French international's stance saw plenty of flak come his way, with TalkSport branding the pundit a 'hypocrite', having once celebrated his handball which killed off Ireland's World Cup qualifying chances, running off on his own to do so.

Henry even took to Twitter himself to try and justify his comments, refusing to back down from his opinion.

He was certainly on the wrong side of public opinion though, with even Arsenal fans criticising him for his stance on Hernandez, a Manchester United owned forward, which in itself tells you just how wrong he got it.

Here is a look at the reaction of Gooners to Henry's comments...

Not quite everybody could quite bring it on themselves to critique the Frenchman however...
