Alexis Sanchez departure has brought about a lot of controversies. The star player first lashed out at Arsenal legends for saying he was no longer committed to the club before his departure before stating that Arsenal Legend Thierry Henry was behind his move away from Arsenal.
Arsenal fans were not happy with such claims and registered their displeasure by requesting that the stature made in honour of Henry be pulled down and also stating that he (Henry) should no longer be involved in Arsenal matters.
Arsenal legend, Thierry Henry has however cleared the air by denying claims of personal behind the scenes involvement in the deal which saw Sanchez move to old Trafford.
He wrote on his twitter and instagram:
“I know I don’t need to explain this to the majority of Arsenal fans but contrary to speculation at no time did I tell Alexis Sanchez to leave Arsenal. I had no idea he was going to sign for Man Utd until I saw it on the news like the rest of you.”
Henry still remains an evergreen Arsenal legend amid the controversy.
