Henry's injury casts doubt over United clash

Zeenews Sports Bureau

London: Arsene Wenger might have to dump his plan of starting Thierry Henry against Manchester United on Sunday as the striker has picked up a calf injury while training on Tuesday.

The Frenchman made a fairytale comeback for Arsenal by scoring the winner against Leeds United in his first match for the club after five years.

However, Henry’s return hasn’t been fairy after all as he was involved in an altercation with a Gunner’s fan after Arsenal lost 2-3 to Swansea which was later followed by an apology.

Henry admitted he had lost his composure after hearing obscene comments from the club’s supporter.

“I was really shocked and disappointed on Sunday, and not just at the result," Henry told the Sun.

"When I arrived in front of our own fans, I couldn`t understand the abuse the team were getting from one of them. I wanted to tell the fan in question that we need their support not abuse. The sentiment was right but in hindsight could have been better expressed.” he said.

Wenger was trying hard to get the on-loan striker fit enough to start against Manchester United on Sunday and if he gets fit on time it would mean Henry will lineup against another veteran Paul Scholes who came out of retirement to rejoin his old club .

The club is awaiting the results of scan.
