Thierry Henry has critical words for West Brom's Saido Berahino

Thierry Henry has stern words for West Brom's unhappy striker Saido Berahino after his move to Tottenham fell through.

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has criticised Saido Berahino's reaction after his move to Tottenham Hotspur fell through.

Berahino took to Twitter to express his frustration at West Bromwich Albion's refusal to sell him, directing his anger towards chairman Jeremy Peace.

Henry told SkySports HQ during the 5pm-7pm portion of the channel's transfer deadline day coverage:

"He's not playing for Jeremy Peace, he's playing for West Brom. He has to respect the fans.

"Whatever goes on in the training ground should stay there. Now he has to stay there and deal with the consequences."

It is hard to see Berahino play for the Baggies again without some form of apology for his outburst, privately or publicly.

Even if he does, the reception he will receive from West Brom fans is likely to be mixed at best.

January is a long time to wait, and there remains no guarantee a club will front up the money West Brom want midway through the season.

In a year in which he could have kicked on and earned a place in England's Euro 2016 squad, the whole situation appears to have backfired on the striker, and he has only contrived to make it worse.
