Henry: Wenger needs to do ‘mental work’ at Arsenal

Date published: Tuesday 7th February 2017 10:03

Thierry Henry believes that Arsenal are not lacking the quality to win the Premier League title, merely the mental strength to achieve their potential.

The Gunners are once again on the periphery of the title race, having lost back-to-back games in the Premier League, but Henry does not agree that they need a change of manager or massive investment.

“Does this team have enough to win the Premier League? It can be debated. On paper, yes. If Chelsea is ahead, Arsenal also can be,” Henry told RMC.

“But it is necessary to be in tune with all the players, to work in training. This team is not aware of what they can achieve. There must be self-management and self-discipline.

“I don’t think Arsene has to leave. Should he change his tactics and his way of doing things? I don’t know. But what he must do there is mental work.

“The tactics help, but what I saw against Chelsea is a mental problem. This is not easy to manage. The problem is more mental than quality. Because if Leicester can win the championship… for now, it is true that they are missing something. Statistics are there to prove that.”
