Thierry Henry, a former player for Arsenal, has criticized Todd Boehly, a co-owner of Chelsea, for the proposed changes to the Premier League.
Along with criticizing the Blues owner for his ignorance of his team, the former Arsenal star also blasted the player.
After he suggested that a four-team tournament should be used instead of the customary three-up, three-down relegation format, American billionaire Todd Boehly has faced a great deal of backlash this week.
He also said there should be a North vs. South All-Star match.
Boehly further claimed that the west London club had developed both Kevin De Bruyne and Mohamed Salah.
But De Bruyne and Salah did not come through Chelsea’s academy.
Reacting to Boehly’s suggestions on CBS Sports, Henry said: “Did he say a lesson? A lesson? What’s that supposed to mean? What are they trying to teach? A lesson? Are you a teacher or something?"
“The comment about De Bruyne and Mo Salah... just learn your own lessons and then come back and teach us something.”
When it was put to Henry that Boehly seemed to have really ‘irritated’ him, the Frenchman replied: "No, he did that himself." Did I say that? He did. "
Henry explained why he has such disdain for the ideas. “I don’t like them because this is Europe and it doesn’t work like that."
“Teams go up and down. An All-Star game for what? I wouldn’t have liked to have [played in one]. Maybe [the public would like it], but you ask me and nope.
