Thierry Henry clarifies his recent comments on Emirates atmosphere, calls for Arsenal fans to stick together

Arsenal fans are currently split on Arsene Wenger's future and the club's poor form.

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry recently made headlines for comments he made about the atmosphere at The Emirates as Arsenal attempt to close in on the Premier League title.

Arsenal's title hopes were severely dented after a home defeat against Swansea City at the start of the month and writing in his column for The Sun the Frenchman stated:

"I have never heard the Arsenal supporters as angry as they were at the Emirates on Wednesday night when their team lost at home to Swansea."

This drew criticism from some fans and a little dig from Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger himself and the now Sky Sports pundit has been receiving criticism lately because of his less than positive views on Arsenal.

Now the club's record goalscorer has been on Sky Sports News HQ (18/03/2016) and clarified his comments.

He made it clear that Arsenal fans, all of them, including himself need to remain positive and stick together if the club are to succeed.

Henry stated:

"You have to try to remain positive. That's the only thing you can do right now.

"That's why all the negativity surrounding the team at the moment they need to block (it) in order to go forward.

"I'm sure you are aware that when I mentioned I have never heard the crowd like that at The Emirates that's what I meant.

"We have to all pull in the same direction, I'm talking as an Arsenal fan here, in order for the team to go all the way."

Arsenal were dumped out of the Champions League and the FA Cup in the past week and are currently 11 points off the league leaders Leicester City - it is looking like a season without a trophy for Arsenal this term.

So it might be a little bit too late for positivity around The Emirates at this point but going forward Henry's point is clear - Arsenal fans need to be on the same page if the club is going to thrive.
