PREMIER - Arsenal, Arteta dismisses Henry doubts
Mikel Arteta has dismissed doubts from Thierry Henry over Arsenal's progress under his management as "just another opinion".
Arsenal have won 10 points from their last four Premier League games but Henry has questioned this week whether things are going in "the right direction" under the Spaniard.
Arteta came under pressure after the Gunners started the season with three successive league defeats which left the club in the relegation zone, however, an upturn in form lifted them to 11th before the international break.
Asked whether he had read Henry's comments, Arteta, named manager of the month for September, said: "I haven't. I am just hearing them from you."
Henry, Arsenal's record goalscorer, also said Arsenal had "suffered" in their goalless draw at Brighton in their most recent league game.
Pressed on whether it was helpful for a former player to make such remarks, the Arsenal manager added: "It's just another opinion. You have to respect that."
