Thierry Henry claims he noticed something “weird” just 10 minutes into Manchester United’s defeat to West Brom on Sunday; a defeat that handed United’s rival, Manchester City the Premier League title.
As reported in The Mirror, the Arsenal legend says he had a feeling the Red Devils were going to concede against the Premier League basement boys and ultimately lose, handing over the title to Manchester City.
Henry also spoke out about Paul Pogba’s poor performance at Old Trafford on Sunday, after putting in a man of the match display in his side’s win over rivals Manchester City last weekend.
“As soon as the game started, something was weird – the atmosphere of the stadium, the team – it’s so weird from what we saw from that team a week ago,” Henry told Sky Sports.
“The commitment, the desire, and I asked if Pogba can do that all the time, the way he played against City. The answer is nope.”
The 40-year-old Frenchman added: “[Jose Mourinho] was trying to calm the players down and he has experience. He saw that result way before we saw it.
“He told them be careful it is going to be different against West Brom and I go back to Pogba: why didn’t you and the rest of the team do what you did against City all season?
“West Brom outworked them; they wanted to go out and hurt them. After 10 minutes, I turned and there was a weird atmosphere and I could only see West Brom scoring.”
