Arsenal legend Thierry Henry made a shocking confession about Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag and the Red Devils after they won the Premier League 3-2 at Arsenal on Sunday.
Despite the defeat by Man United, Henry has been impressed with the progress Ten Hag’s side have made in the past six months.
The former Barcelona striker said that he had recommended even Barcelona president Joan Laporta to appoint the “genius” Ten Hag after Ronald Koeman’s dismissal.
Speaking on CBS Sports, Henry said: “I’m happy Arsenal won and deserved it after the performance in the second half, but Manchester United look different under ten Hag.
“I’ll be honest, I’m a big Ten Hag fan. He’s the coach I recommended to Laporta at Barcelona after Ronald Koeman was sacked. He’s a genius.
“Today, we saw a team that had three years of development versus a team that had six months. Also, a team that had a full week of rest against a team with two days of rest, and Manchester United were still going toe-to-toe, which was surprising. I thought Arsenal would be in All over United from the start, and United players will sit down. I was wrong.”
