Arsene Wenger has said Thierry Henry is well within his rights to criticise Arsenal but maintains he does not listen to what the Sky Sports pundit says.
Henry built his legacy at the Gunners and departed north London a legend having scored 226 goals in 369 appearances for the Emirates outfit.
But since taking on his role as a pundit, the Frenchman has often pointed out Arsenal's shortcomings.
Having worked as a pundit in France, Wenger understands Henry's role and said it is better that he has his say on his former club.
As per Le Parisien, Wenger said: "Not at all. The role of a pundit calls for that. It's better that he says something. Personally, I don't listen to what he says."
Wenger has had to face a lot of criticism this season, most notably from Henry's former Sky Sports colleague Gary Neville.
The new Valencia head coach began a war of words with the French manager by claiming his players took an arrogant approach towards match preparations and he also said the Gunners would never win the title with their current midfielders.
Wenger emphatically hit back and branded the Manchester United legend "ridiculous".
It is obvious that he has a better rapport with Henry, and the former Gunner is never likely to say something that would get under his old manager's skin.
