London, April 1:
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger insisted heâ€™d no problems with Thierry Henryâ€™s announcement that his club future would be resolved before the World Cup gets underway in June. Henry has been repeatedly linked with a move to Spanish giants Barcelona although Arsenal are keen to keep the keystone of their attack.
â€œAt the end of the season we are going to have to take a decision. It will be done before the World Cup, thatâ€™s for sure,â€ Henry, who scored the Gunnersâ€™ second goal in their 2-0 midweek Champions League quarter-final first leg win at home to Juventus, said. And later Wenger reacted by saying: â€œOn my side it has always been the same, on his side, only Thierry can explain where he stands.â€
Arsenal have sometimes been criticised in the past for trying to keep to a tight wage structure in comparison with their Premiership and European rivals. But Henry insisted financial considerations would not be a factor in whether he stayed or moved.
