Arsenal Fans Fuming With Thierry Henry For Having Paul Pogba's Shirt After 3-1 Defeat

As if seeing Paul Pogba lay on two assists against their team during a 3-1 defeat on Saturday evening wasn't bad enough for Arsenal fans, Gunners supporters also had to contend with the sight of club legend Thierry Henry clutching what appeared to be the former Juventus man's shirt after the game.

Pogba set up Antonio Valencia's opening effort before then brushing Laurent Koscielny aside in the second half to leave Jesse Lingard with a tap-in to extend United's lead to 3-1, which would end up being the final score as Jose Mourinho's side did their best to keep up whatever pressure they can on Premier League leaders Manchester City.

The 24-year-old midfielder's game was marred by a coming together with Hector Bellerin which resulted in Pogba seeing red, leaving United with 10 men for the last 15 minutes or so of the match and now means he will miss Sunday's crucial derby game with City.

However, despite the red card, Pogba's performance had clearly made enough of an impression on his compatriot and Arsenal icon Thierry Henry, who was pictured at the Emirates Stadium after the game chatting to Pogba and Jose Mourinho alongside William Gallas and fellow Arsenal legend Robert Pires.

And in Henry's hand could be seen what appears to be a black United away shirt that apparently belongs to Pogba.

Of course, given that Henry and Pogba are fellow countrymen and fellow Juventus alumni, it's no surprise that they are close, although it was perhaps a bit ill advised for the Gunners' hero to be clutching Pogba's shirt in public so soon after United had just taken all three points at the Emirates Stadium.

What do you think? Is it embarrassing for Arsenal for one of their greatest ever players to be accepting Pogba's jersey or is it perfectly fine and too much fuss is being made about it?
