Thierry Henry admits he will stay at Arsenal provided Arsene Wenger remains as manager.

The 29-year-old signed a new four-year deal last summer, but his future at Arsenal has remained the subject of speculation.

“At the end of last season I signed a new contract,” he told Sport magazine.

“I believe in the boss and what he is trying to do here. As long as he is here then I will be here – it’s just as simple as that.”

Wenger has another year left on his current deal, but his role has come under scrutiny following the recent departure from Arsenal of vice-chairman David Dein, regarded as his closest ally in the boardroom.

Henry believes the club have paid the price this season for a lack of experience.

He said: “I think perhaps we lose our concentration. We don’t do this on purpose.

“We have ended up losing so many points against teams we should have beaten.

“The talent is there but you need to put the ball in the back of the net, and I wasn’t fresh enough, or there enough, to do that for the team this season.

“It was the same with Robin van Persie, who has been injured, and William Gallas, who was out for more than three months.

“I’m not complaining about these things, but it is a fact and it does make a difference.

“We have a lot of amazing youngsters at the club, but you need experience too.

“We’d be in a much better position if we had taken our chances.

“We do have something to build on, but we need to kill teams off. That’s all that let us down this year.”
