Thierry Henry admits that he no longer understands Arsenal after the north London club tried to join the collapsed European Super League.


Arsenal were one of six Premier League sides that attempted to join the breakaway competition but retreated after tremendous backlash from fans, pundits, the Government, and the media.


Thousands of fans also protested outside the Emirates Stadium on Friday, calling for owner Stan Kroenke to sell the club.


However, Arsenal's all-time highest goalscorer Henry has publicly criticised Kroenke's values, adding that the American has been running the club like a company.


"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," the Frenchman 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. But whatever it was, they got it wrong. Badly wrong.


"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."
