Wenger: ‘It is a luxury to have
Henry’
Dear Arsenal supporter,
Thierry Henry’s late winner
made the headlines at
Sunderland and you have to
say he finished a legend’s
story on his final day in the
Premier League.
Thierry secured us the three
points in a difficult game
where Sunderland were
resilient, well-organised and
tried to catch us on the break
every time. You could see that
they have a lot of spirit in their
side.
We also had to deal with a
difficult pitch and, although
we had a lot of the ball, we
couldn’t create a lot because
Sunderland made it hard to
get through their defence.
In the end though we were
spirited, intelligent, patient
and resilient and we had to be
all those things to get the
three points after going 1-0
down.
The Sunderland goal was a
double blow because we lost
Per Mertesacker to an injury as
well. Per told me that he felt a
pain in his ankle and couldn’t
move at all.
He went home on crutches
and appears to have done
some ligament damage, but
how bad that is we don’t yet
know. He will certainly miss
the Milan first leg.
Some will feel that play should
have stopped when Per went
down but you cannot demand
that. You do not know if a guy
has gone down through injury
or because he has slipped.
Fortunately we turned the
game around and Thierry’s
contribution at the end shows
you once more that these
players never lose it.
Exceptional talent survives.
You have that with Giggs and
Scholes at Manchester United
and Thierry here. It is just a
luxury to have a player like him
on the bench.
We are back in fourth place
even though two weeks ago
everybody said it was out of
reach for us.
We have to be cautious but we
are happy to be back in this
position. It is still very open for
everybody around there. You
have Newcastle, Chelsea,
Liverpool and us and it’s down
to consistency now.
Thanks for your support.
