Mikel Arteta responds to Henry's criticism

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has responded to Thierry Henry's comments over the club's progress under his management, terming them as 'just another opinion'. 

Henry questioned whether Arsenal is heading 'in the right' direction under Mikel Arteta. The north London side lost its three opening matches in the Premier League but since then they have bounced back. 

Speaking on Thursday, Arteta has dismissed Henry's doubts about Arsenal's progress. 

"I haven't. I am just hearing them from you," Arteta responded when asked if he heard about Henry's comments. 

Henry, Arsenal's record goalscorer, also said Arsenal had "suffered" in their goalless draw at Brighton in their most recent league game.

Pressed on whether it was helpful for a former player to make such remarks, the Arsenal manager added: "It's just another opinion. You have to respect that."

The Gunners have won 10 points from their last four Premier League games and will be up against Crystal Palace on Monday.
