Henry: Arsenal is run like a business company not a football club

Sun 25 April 2021 | 7:52

The Gunners legend says he is disappointed by the KSE ownership group after their involvement in the Super League.

Arsenal

were among the 12 founding members of the European Super League. However, the competition was suspended amid huge backlash from football fans. The Premier League clubs were the first members that announced their departure from the ESL, but

Thiery Henry

says the owners’ choice to join the breakaway plans is still disappointing.

“I do not recognise my club and what happened just now, with them trying to join a league that would have been closed, makes no sense to me,”

Henry told

The Telegraph

.

“They have been running the club like a company, not a football club, and they showed their hand.

"Maybe it’s a lack of understanding of the core football values and maybe the money was too big of a temptation. Whatever it was, they got it wrong. Badly wrong.”

Arsenal fans protested against Stan Kroenke and the KSE ownership group on Friday. They are asking for the removal of the current owners who were involved in the plans for the breakaway league.

Henry added:

“I was genuinely shocked like most people and couldn’t believe what was unfolding. I have never talked before, but what happened recently made me realise fans, this is your club. It is your club and I’m an Arsenal fan too.

“I’m proud of what the fans achieved. Not just Arsenal fans, all the fans. The result was a victory for football.”
