Robert Pires: Thierry Henry should leave Arsenal


7th, June 2007


55984409.jpgArsenal fans won’t thank Bob Pires for quotes in the Spanish press urging his old mate Thierry Henry to leave London and join Barcelona:
‘Thierry Henry would be very happy at Barca. I should not be saying this [but I’m going to anyway…], as Arsenal, their manager and their fans are all very good. But it would be best for him to make the change. Arsenal are at the end of a cycle. They have lost good players in Patrick Vieira, Edu, Ashley Cole, Dennis Bergkamp and myself.’
Nothing like stabbing your old team in the back, is there?

    mmm, hows those grapes rob?

    That’s what I was going to say.
    Pires was always one of my favs, so maybe he’s just venting. Besides, they sold Vieira at the right time, Edu was never anything special, Cashley is a twat, and Bergkamp was just old!

    I quite liked Edu. He’s actually doing very well at Valencia at the moment. We could definitely use him.
