Arsene Wenger is not the only one to be blamed according to Thierry Henry

English Premier League

Former Arsenal legend, Thierry Henry has stated that Arsene Wenger is not the only person to be blamed for the failed title challenge.

Arsenal, who is 13 points behind Leicester City, are currently struggling to keep hold of the fourth place, and they may miss out on a Champions League place next season.


Henry believes that it is not only the manager that has to be blamed but also the players, the staffs and everyone associated with the team. He said that football is a team sport and that you win together, and you lose together.

According to him, there need to be changes in the team next season if they want to compete for the title. It would be difficult for them given that all the teams around them will be investing massively and that Arsenal will have to make investments too.

When asked about Arsene Wenger’s comments that he would not change his current team a lot, the former French international stated that he agrees with him. He believes that there is not a lot to be changed in the team, but it is their mentality that needs changing. He said that if Arsene Wenger wants to win the title with the current team, he will have to find a way to make each player perform better.

For Thierry Henry, it is the players that are not performing at their best level and that they need to be motivated so as to reach their full potential.

Arsene Wenger has been under pressure for a lack of results since the beginning of the year. Indeed, a poor run of form has seen Arsenal fall down the table to the 4th place. They were first at the start of the year.
