Manchester United legendary coach Sir Alex Ferguson said that his relationship with Arsene Wenger became toxic after the signing of Thierry Henry. The two teams faced a number of battles between themselves with titles shared between both teams including the infamous “Battle of Old Trafford” and “Pizzagate”. Ferguson recently made an appearance in a documentary about Arsene Wenger where he displayed a deep admiration for his old foe.

“It became toxic for a while,” Sir Alex Ferguson admitted about his relationship with Arsene Wenger. “The big change that made Arsenal was reinventing [Thierry] Henry. And the goals… he was fantastic. You’re always looking in the rear-view mirror to see who’s coming up behind you, and when you see someone you accelerate. Arsenal was catching us up, and their team was good enough to go above us, there’s no question about that.”

“I won 13 leagues but I was never near going through a season undefeated,” he added. “The achievement stands above everything else, and it was Arsene’s. Henry arrived in north London to reunite with Wenger, whom he worked under at Monaco, for £11m in 1999. A then struggling winger from Juventus, Henry was brought in to succeed Nicolas Anelka, who joined Real Madrid that summer, but endured a shaky start to his Gunners career.”
