"You Can’t Give Him Henry’s Shirt!" - Jamie O'Hara Mocks Arsenal For Giving Eddie Nketiah The No.14 Shirt
| Last updated
Jamie O'Hara has savagely mocked Arsenal for giving Eddie Nketiah the club's iconic No.14 shirt for next season.
The 23-year-old has signed a new long-term contract at Arsenal and was also given a new shirt number for the 2022/23 season.
He's been handed the No.14 shirt, previously worn by Arsenal legend Thierry Henry between 1999 and 2007.
New deal, new number, unfinished business. God is good. 🤝🙏🏾 #EN14 @Arsenal pic.twitter.com/q6i9oFhINY— Eddie Nketiah 📞 (@EddieNketiah9) June 18, 2022
But the decision to give Nketiah the same shirt number Henry wore during his iconic spell has been slammed by former Tottenham star O'Hara.
He took aim at the North London outfit, claiming it sums up where they are right now following a disappointing campaign last season.
On talkSPORT, he said: "I can’t believe Nketiah is getting #14! It sums up where Arsenal are right now.
"They’ve given him Theirry Henry’s shirt! This is just magic for Tottenham fans.
"You can’t give him Henry’s shirt!"

Arsenal hero Ian Wright hit out at fans who criticised Nketiah's new shirt number.
"What's a number? Why don't you say nothing if you have nothing positive to say about our players?" He exclaimed.
"You can never call yourself an Arsenal fan with negativity of this nature? Would you say this to Eddie's face? If not, STFU."
Nketiah's previous contract was due to expire at the end of this month.
But Mikel Arteta has successfully convinced him to remain at the Emirates.
Nketiah enjoyed a prolific spell towards the end of last season, scoring five goals in eight matches for Arteta's team.
