Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has explained that current manager Arsene Wenger does not need to face the exit doors at the Emirates before the Gunners could win the Premier League, but stated that the embattled gaffer only need to address his side’s mentality problems.
After suffering a 3-1 defeat at Chelsea on Saturday, February, 4, 2017, the Gunners are now 12 points behind current leaders and have limited or no chance of winning the Premier League title this season.
With Arsene Wenger's contract at the Emirates expiring at the end of the season and no news of a renewal, that could become a reality.
Henry, 39, feels it is not a necessary step for the Gunners, though, insisting a psychological weakness appears to be holding the team back.

“Does this team have enough to win the Premier League? It can be debated. On paper, yes. If Chelsea is ahead, Arsenal also can be.
“But it is necessary to be in tune with all the players, to work in training. This team is not aware of what they can achieve. There must be self-management and self-discipline.
“I don't think Arsene has to leave. Should he change his tactics and his way of doing things? I don't know. But what he must do there is mental work. The tactics help, but what I saw against Chelsea is a mental problem.
''This is not easy to manage. The problem is more mental than quality because if Leicester can win the championship... For now, it is true that they are missing something. Statistics are there to prove that.” Henry explained.
Henry spent eight years at Arsenal before joining Spanish giants Barcelona in the year 2007.
