Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has hit back over former striker Thierry Henry’s comments that he had never seen the club’s supporters as angry as they were during the club’s defeat to Swansea City.
Earlier, Arsenal suffered a 1-2 defeat at the hands of Swansea, leaving the Wenger’s side six points below league leaders Leicester City and also compromising the club’s chances to end their 12-year wait for the title.
Following the defeat, Henry said, “They (fans) were less patient than I have ever known, booed one of the manager’s substitutions and groaned every time a pass went astray or a tackle was lost.”
Wenger said that the club’s legend had no right to speak about the level of disappointment among fans, goal.com reported.
The Frenchman admitted that Henry has a right to voice his opinions, but added that he is not best placed to comment.
“He has not found the measurement of the fans’ anger, of 60,000 people, straight away,” Wenger added.
Arsenal, which are currently third in the league table, will next lock horns with Tottenham on Saturday.
