Video: Thierry Henry Says Jens Lehmann Would’ve Punched Him if He Made Mistake Like Third WBA Goal

Theirry Henry insists Jens Lehmann would have punched him had he been involved in a mistake like the one that saw Arsenal concede a third goal against West Brom.

The Gunners legend was speaking as part of Sky Sport’s punditry team for the game at the Hawthorns this afternoon.

It was a very poor performance and result for Arsenal as a hard-working Baggies side ran out 3-1 winners thanks to a Craig Dawson double and Hal Robson-Kanu strike.

Both of Dawson’s goals came from corners, with Arsenal looking unorganised and lazy in their approach to defending.

And Henry, while analysing the second, insists his former team-mate Lehmann would have punched him had he defended as badly as some of the Arsenal players did to concede their third:

It’s hard to disagree with Henry as Lehmann was just one several hard-nosed team-mates he had during his playing career at Arsenal.

If the Gunners are to improve at set pieces, they’ll need to find someone in the team who is capable of organising them properly.
