Thierry Henry’s retro Arsenal shirt on sale for £40 – but real version costs £999

Thierry Henry received even more love from his already adoring supporters on Sunday, as he was spotted in a retro Arsenal shirt overlooking the 3-1 win over Tottenham at the Emirates.

The shirt was worn by Arsenal’s all time top scorer, which was in a retro shirt that was worn before Henry took over as England’s international.

Henry is no longer playing, but the Frenchman remains passionate about Arsenal. This was evident on Sunday when he wore his shirt despite being surrounded in suits in an exclusive area of Dubai.

However, Henry’s shirt has been identified by some viewers as a cheaper imitation than the genuine thing.

Fans noticed that there was no Adidas logo above the Arsenal badge, meaning that the shirt was an unbranded replica, costing around £40 from the club website as opposed to the genuine version – which can currently be found online for £999.

There have been theories drawn up as to why this was the case, with the Telegraph even suggesting that Henry may have removed it due to his affiliation with other sporting brands.

However, it’s probably likely that Henry just acquired a cheaper version through the club themselves, as Arsenal offer more affordable replica’s in the retro section of their merchandise.

Either way, Arsenal fans won’t be too disappointed to see such a sight, and will be even happier about the fact that Henry was spotted with Spotify CEO Daniel Ek, who is worth an estimated $3.9bn (£2.9bn) and has shown interest in buying the club.

Henry has fully backed the takeover proposal from Ek to succeed the Kroenke family, who aren’t the most popular amongst the club’s supporters, but their summer spend of £150m may suggest that they aren’t planning on handing over the club anytime soon.
