Henry links his future to Wenger
Thierry Henry
Henry has again played down speculation about his future
Thierry Henry insists he will stay at Arsenal as long as Arsene Wenger remains as manager.

The 29-year-old's future has again been at the centre of speculation after an injury-troubled season, despite signing a new four-year deal last summer.

He told Sport magazine: "At the end of last season I signed a new contract.

"I believe in the boss and what he is trying to do here. As long as he is here then I will be here - it's just as simple as that."

Wenger has another year left on his current deal, but there has also been questions about his future after long-time friend and close confidante David Dein left Arsenal because of "irreconcilable differences" with the rest of the board.

We have a lot of amazing youngsters at the club, but you need experience too

Arsenal's Thierry Henry

Arsenal will be without a trophy this season, and Henry believes they have paid the price for a lack of experience.

He said: "I think perhaps we lose our concentration. We don't do this on purpose.

"We have ended up losing so many points against teams we should have beaten.

"The talent is there but you need to put the ball in the back of the net, and I wasn't fresh enough, or there enough, to do that for the team this season.


"It was the same with Robin van Persie, who has been injured, and William Gallas, who was out for more than three months.

"I'm not complaining about these things, but it is a fact and it does make a difference.

"We have a lot of amazing youngsters at the club, but you need experience too."

He added: "We'd be in a much better position if we had taken our chances. "We do have something to build on, but we need to kill teams off. That's all that let us down this year."
