Henry says Adebayor showed a lack of class

Thierry Henry has criticised Emmanuel Adebayor for a lack of class after his celebrations in front of the Arsenal fans last week. The Togo striker ran the length of the Eastlands pitch to celebrate in front of the Gunners supporters after scoring in Manchester City's 4-2 Premier League win to sparked a furious reactions from the fans of his former club.

Arsenal legend Henry, now with Barcelona, has criticised Adebayor's actions. He told the Sunday Mirror: "The fans at Arsenal were great. They were and always will be my family. I never saw them behave badly so to react like they did at the weekend shows just how angry and upset they were. No matter what Adebayor's emotions were, he could have earned himself a lot of respect by not celebrating the goal.

"That would have shown real class and that to be honest is what most players choose to do when they score against their old clubs. I don't really understand why he didn't do that."

Henry added: "Arsene (Wenger) puts a lot of investment in you when he sees talent and I don't think it would hurt for Adebayor to show him, the club and the fans a little respect."
