Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has launched a scathing criticism of his former club’s owners less than a week after the European Super League debacle.

The Gunners were one of the 12 founding clubs of the proposed competition which quickly fell apart after widespread opposition from fans, pundits and even players.

One of the main reasons for Arsenal ’s inclusion as a ‘leading European club’ stems from Henry’s first spell in London when he won two Premier League titles.

Before leaving for Barcelona in 2007, he had established himself as one of the best strikers in Premier League history and helped Arsenal to become a perennial top four team.

But despite his success with the Gunners and the affection he holds for the club and their supporters, Henry has now launched a scathing rebuke of their recent decision-making.

The Frenchman has never before spoken out about the ownership of Stan Kroenke, but the recent controversy over the Super League has led to him breaking that silence.

“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,” Henry 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.”

The Gunners’ record goalscorer also revealed that the recent actions by Kroenke have left him in a state of shock.

“I was genuinely shocked like most people and couldn’t believe what was unfolding,” Henry added.

“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.”Follow @mirrorfootball
