Football News
Thierry Henry has revealed he decided to quit Arsenal as he could not face life at the club without David Dein and Arsene Wenger.

Former vice-chairman Dein has already left the club and Wenger has not committed himself to be at Emirates Stadium beyond his current contact - and, in an open letter to fans published in The Sun, the France striker said: "Arsene has been part of my life for as long as I can remember.

"Unfortunately and understandably he has said at this moment he will not commit to the club past the expiration of his current deal which finishes at the end of the coming season. I respect his decision and his honesty but I will be 31 at the end of next season and I cannot take the chance to be there without Arsene Wenger and David Dein."
