Wenger: no panic on Henry's future
font size    

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger claimed on Friday that there is no need for Gunners fans to panic over striker Thierry Henry's future.

The 28-year-old is yet to open talks about a new deal but is under contract until the end of the 2006-07 season.

"There is no urgency. He finishes in 2007 and does not have to talk in October 2005," said Wenger.

The Frenchman added: "We are not in a position where we have to make a profit with anybody. We want a strong side and want to keep our strong players."

Wenger insisted Henry, who became the club's record goalscorer with a brace in the Champions League win at Sparta Prague, was fully focused on the Gunners.

"He doesn't owe me anything and we are relaxed about it," he said. "He is very positive. He is focused on the team and wants to do well for us.

"He's not stupid, you cannot say he is not committed to the club and will let this spoil his season."

Wenger has already insisted there is no rift between him and Henry over the striker's decision to delay contract talks.

"You can only talk about it when both parties are ready," said Wenger. "We will do it when he is ready."

Spanish giants Barcelona are rumoured to be interested in signing Henry, who could leave for a fraction of his market value if his contract is almost up.
