"It was the winter holiday and I was back in Togo having a kickabout with friends when my phone rang.One of the boys answered it and said, 'Manu, it's Arsene for you'. 'Arsene who?' I said. 'Arsene Wenger', he said. 'Get out of it', I said, and grabbed the phone off him. But then I heard the voice. 'Allo'. F*****g hell. It is Arsene Wenger!"

Henry Praises Highbury Fans For Vieira Reception

Thierry Henry has praised the Arsenal fans at Highbury for giving former captain Patrick Vieira such a warm welcome on Tuesday.

Henry said: "I was happy with the reception Patrick had but sometimes you have good days and bad days.

"Patrick will always be one of the best players I have played with. But we had a good day and he had a bad day."

It was a mixed day for Patrick as Juventus were beaten by Arsenal 2-0. Former Liverpool legend Steve McMahon said that Arsenal needed a two goal lead going into the 2nd leg and that exactly what they got.

Pavel Nedved and the Italian press seem to agree that a miracle is the only thing that can save Juventus from elimination.

The Italian press blasted Juve and Vieira was not to be left out. Tuttosport, a Turin-based paper said: "In the end those at Highbury understood just what a good bit of business Wenger had done." The famous Gazzetta dello Sport said that the former 'pupil'[Fabregas], 'outclassed' Vieira.
