Thierry Henry has lived up to his title of Arsenal legend once again after stating that he never told Patrick Vieira to sign for Spurs and that he wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.

Debate has raged on in blogosphere after it was reported that the other French Arsenal legend, Patrick Vieira could possibly sign for the old enemy, T*ttenham Hotspur as the midfield general searches for first team football.

Newspapers also reported that Arsenal’s record goal scorer, Thierry Henry urged Paddy to make the move to the Lilywhites.

Henry put the record straight in fine style.

‘I am Arsenal through and through. I’d never advise anyone to sign for Tottenham. Patrick Vieira is a grown man who will do whatever he has to do for his own career. But I have never advised anyone about their future because it’s not my business.’

‘I can’t have Arsenal fans thinking I am helping Tottenham in any way. The truth is I was talking to Spurs boss Harry Redknapp and he told me he was trying to sign Patrick from Inter Milan. I was very surprised because Patrick is like me. He loves Arsenal.’

‘I just said that Patrick would be a brilliant signing. But I also made it clear I would be shocked if it happened.’

I’m not sure how it will make Barca fans feel upon hearing Thierry say that he’s Arsenal through and through, and I don’t frankly care, but it gives me a warm fuzzy feeling inside to hear Henry speak of his former team in such a way, even more so by doing what any self respecting Gooner would do ….. having a pop at Tottenham.
