Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood has dismissed as "an excuse" Thierry Henry´s claims that uncertainty surrounding Arsene Wenger´s future prompted his decision to join Barcelona.

Henry completed a £16million switch to the Nou Camp on Monday and revealed the situation at the club following vice-chairman David Dein´s departure last season, and the apparent uncertainty over Wenger´s future as manager, were reasons behind his decision.

Hill-Wood, however, told the Daily Telegraph: "I am not particularly worried about what Thierry said but whether it really influenced his decision or not we will have to wait and see. We certainly don´t think Thierry Henry going and Arsene Wenger´s contract situation are in any way linked. That was just an excuse."
