Arsenal striker Thierry Henry has said that he is extremely sorry for his reactions to an Arsenal fan following the 3-2 defeat at the hands of Swansea recently.
Arsenal lost in the match despite taking the lead in the first 5 min through Robin van Persie. Swansea equalised shortly afterwards through a penalty from Scott Sinclair, although Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says that it was never a penalty in the first place. Still, it was enough for Swansea to get a grip on the match. In many ways, they played like Arsenal and Barcelona to beat Arsenal at their own game.
They passed the ball brilliantly and took use of the opportunities they were presented due to lacklustre Arsenal defence. Even though Arsenal managed to come back into the match through Theo Walcott in the second half, they immediately conceded at the other end to hand Swansea full advantage in the match. In the end, Arsenal could not recover from the goal considered immediately after Theo Walcott scored for Arsenal. Even with the presence of Thierry Henry, Arsenal were unable to get past a stubborn Swansea defence. After the match, Arsenal legend Thierry Henry was involved in a fight with an Arsenal fan, who had accused him and the team of poor and lacklustre performance.
“I was really shocked and disappointed on Sunday, and not just at the result. After the final whistle of a very tricky game, I insisted the whole team go and applaud the Arsenal supporters. When I arrived in front of our own fans, I couldn’t understand the abuse the team were getting from one of them. I wanted to tell the fan in question that we need their support not abuse,” Henry told the Sun. Thierry Henry is a doubt for the match against Manchester United.
