Henry blasts Arsenal over duo’s contract dispute

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has slammed his former clubs handling of the Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez situation.

The pair are entering the last few months of their current deals, and look almost certain not to extend, meaning that they are free to leave in the summer.

While Ozil has been strongly linked with a move to Barcelona and Manchester United at the end of the season, Alexis Sanchez looks likely to be joining Manchester City as early as January.

And Henry, the Gunners’ record scorer, says Arsenal should have only themselves to blame for the situation they find themselves in and concedes they must look to sell them both in January to recoup any sort of fee.

Speaking on Sky Sports News: “We are talking about something they created themselves. You are going to miss Sanchez if he leaves and you are going to miss Ozil, because they are quality players.

“Now, are you not going to get any money for them either?

“If something is coming now, you have to at least get some money, because you are going to lose them anyway at the end.

“They haven’t signed new contracts yet, that is something we are sure about.

“So you are not going to get money for them if they leave at the end of the season. So it’s a double punishment.”
