Thierry Henry says he will always dislike Tottenham

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry makes no apologies for how he feels about Tottenham.

Thierry Henry nowadays earns his money as a television pundit, while he can also be spotted coaching Arsenal's young players on occasion.

Gone are the days where he used to light up the Premier League and feel the adulation of fans in the stands, and the bitter taunts of the opposition.

He maintains however that he will always bear a grudge against Arsenal's rivals Tottenham Hotspur, and does not attempt to feign neutrality here.

He told The Sun: "I didn’t grow up as an Arsenal fan and I had no idea of the history of the North London derby until I arrived in England in 1999.

"But I soon grew into not liking Tottenham and that’s the way it’s always going to be."

Henry was a player who regularly haunted Spurs during his playing days, and is still Arsenal's highest ever goalscorer, breaking Ian Wright's record. 

Henry's message is that he will always be an Arsenal man, and if he continues his coaching, there could be an even more high profile role for him waiting at The Emirates in the future.

Sunday's North London derby ended 1-1, with Harry Kane scoring the opener, before Kieran Gibbs netted a second half equaliser for Arsenal.
