- Henry chose to be at the Etihad Stadium to see Manchester City crowned champions
- The former French forward has yet to say anything in defence of his action
Thierry Henry was conspicuously missing from the Emirates Stadium on Sunday when Arsene Wenger managed Arsenal for the last at home after 22 years in charge.
Arsene Wenger is leaving Arsenal at the end of the season, bringing to an end a period most football fans across the world have praised him for.
Former France international Henry, who is a Sky Sports pundit, was at the Etihad Stadium to watch Manchester City against Huddersfield. Although this was a result of his work, fans of Arsenal were not pleased.
Henry is widely thought to be the best player of the Arsene Wenger era at Arsenal. In 2011, he was celebrated with a statue outside of the Emirates Stadium.
The match itself saw Arsenal wallop Burnley by five goals to nil with Gabonese international Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scoring a brace. It was a befitting result for the occasion especially for Wenger’
Before the game, Wenger said, “Personally, I expect today will be dominated by sadness. It's the end of a long story for me at Arsenal”.
There were a number of players from the Invincibles era that went unbeaten as they won the Premier League title in the 2003-2004 season. Emmanuel Petit, Frederik Ljunberg, Robert Pires and others were in attendance.
Arsenal fans across the world took social media, mainly Twitter, to express their anger with Thierry Henry missing out on the occasion. Even a few famous international sports journalists could not hide their disappointment.
