Thierry Henry says his final goal for Arsenal meant so much to him because of how much he loves the club.

The legendary striker scored a last-gasp winner against Sunderland four years ago this week on his last appearance as a Gunner.

Henry says it was an emotional moment because of his connection with the club and its supporters.

“I just love the club,” he told Arsenal Player. “I get upset like a fan and I think like a fan. People think what they think but it is true love. I just love the club.

“The most important thing is it is Arsenal Football Club, whether Tony Adams played here, Dennis Bergkamp played here or Tony Adams played here, or Marc Overmans, or Alan Smith or Ian Wright or whoever.

“The guys that come after and the guys that play now, the most important thing is that Arsenal stays right up there and competes to win titles and be a good team.”
