London, Jan 16 (IANS) Thierry Henry’s second match for Arsenal after returning to the club turned sour after he was involved in an altercation in the Londoners 2-3 defeat against Swansea at the Liberty Stadium.
After the match ended Sunday, Henry was seen angrily gesticulating and aggressively shouting towards a group of Arsenal fans.
Henry, who made a dream return to the club, scoring a winner against Leeds United in the FA Cup, came on as a substitute in the 63rd minute in the shock away defeat. Henry gave the ball away cheaply in Swansea’s build-up to the third goal, enraging the Gunners’ fans.
The Sun reported that an angry fan was heard shouting after Arsenal’s sixth away defeat of the season: “Where is the heart and the character and the fight?”
Henry shouted back: “Get behind the team and support the players and don’t be negative.”
The 34-year-old returned to Arsenal on a two-month loan deal from MLS side New York Red Bulls.
