Henry: 'Arsene Wenger's Legacy Untouchable'

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry believes that the legacy Arsene Wenger has left the North-London club in his 22-year-spell is untouchable..
"It was a bit of a mixed one. It is a sad day for me to see the big man leaving the club, although we all know he has some games left. Happy in a way that people are going to hopefully give him the exit he deserves," he told Sky Sports News.

"A bit of happiness also because I think recently it has been hard for him and the club. I just hope that starting from Sunday that people are going to support the team and give him a good exit.

"Is it a good time or a bad time? People will debate that. It was his time and he felt like he had to say that. 

"My thing is recently people were always confusing what the team was doing and his legacy. Once you announce that you're leaving people are going to talk about your legacy and his legacy is untouchable."
Henry, Belgium's assistant manager, was asked if he would consider taking over at the Emirates having previously said in February it would be a dream, but the 40-year-old was reluctant to give any indication this time. He said:
"Look at me laughing! Listen, I'm not going to go that way again. I was trying to talk from the heart and it went a bit, I would say, too far. 

"There is one person you can ask that person to, and that's Ivan Gazidis. He's the one who should be answering the question.  "I am here today to interview Pep Guardiola and Raheem Sterling. I cannot help you with more than that."
Henry scored more than any other player under a single manager in PEnglish remier League history, with 175 under Wenger, and remains Arsenal's highest ever scorer with 228 goals in total.
