Mixed emotions from Arsenal supporters on Twitter as Henry leaves coaching role
By Amir Mir
Thierry Henry has left his role as Arsenal Under-18s coach after Arsene Wenger made him choose between Sky and the club – and supporters on Twitter reacted with mixed emotions.
The 38-year-old has been working as a pundit on Sky Sports, where he earns £4million a year, alongside being a youth coach at The Emirates.
But his role at Arsenal has now been terminated after Wenger’s ultimatum to work for one or the other, and Henry has chosen his lucrative punditry role.
One Arsenal fan felt that if he loved the club then he would return to the Emirates.
But, others respected his decision stating he has given enough to the club and will remain a legend, regardless of what happens.

The poster-boy of the 2004 Invincibles side, Henry has worked with Arsenal’s youth sides at all ages as part of his UEFA A licence qualifications.
The former Barcelona and Monaco striker had even offered to work for free at Arsenal, with his proposed wage to be shared between Arsenal’s coaching staff.
Arsenal fan and journalist Piers Morgan ripped into Wenger and his treatment of the club legend, stating he will now go to coach at a rival club.
Here are the reactions of Arsenal supporters:
So disgusted by Arsenal manager's treatment of Thierry Henry.
Thierry will now go to a rival club to coach their young players.
