REVEALED: Arsenal interviewed Henry before Emery hire

Arsenal considered Thierry Henry ahead of naming Unai Emery as manager.

Arsenal fans have taken to Emery well but, back in the summer, the appointment of the former PSG and Sevilla boss came as a surprise.

Football.London says the Gunners also talked with Henry.

The Frenchman is the club's all-time leading scorer and held in high regard by many of the club's supporters.

But the report suggests that Henry failed to pass the test with the Gunners instead going for Emery.
