​Alexis Sanchez backtracks over claims Henry advised him to leave Arsenal

New Manchester United signing Alexis Sanchez says Arsenal legend Thierry Henry did not tell him to leave, and it was a "personal decision".

That led some Gunners supporters to question the Frenchman, who responded on Tuesday: "At no time did I tell Alexis Sanchez to leave Arsenal."

Sanchez said Henry - who left for Barcelona in 2007 - "loves" the club.

The Chilean wrote on Twitter: "Someday it would be nice to see him as the Arsenal coach."
