Arsenal legend Henry turns on New York Red Bulls staff

New York Red Bulls star Thierry Henry has rapped club staff over his injury problems.

Arsenal legend Henry is out of their game with Columbus Crew due to hamstring problems.

Asked if age was becoming a concern, Henry turned sensitive.

"That is a stupid question," he snapped at the New York Daily News.

He also insinuated that the Red Bulls fitness staff was responsible for a rash of hamstring injuries.

"We've been having eight or nine hamstring (injuries) in three weeks. So clearly something's happening. I don't know (what's happening). I'm not the fitness coach. We've been doing what we've been told."

Coach Hans Backe acknowledged the problem.

"Five or six (players) have had tight hamstrings. so we have to check that, definitely," he said. "I have to sit down and figure out why we have that."
