Henry wanted us before Arsenal - but Fergie rejected him, Man Utd insider

Wednesday, 27 May 2020


Manchester United's former head of security has revealed Sir Alex Ferguson rejected the chance to sign Thierry Henry ahead of Arsenal.

Ned Kelly also acted as a bodyguard for Fergie, David Beckham and Eric Cantona.

"In the tunnel after the game my phone goes, Eric's older brother Jean-Marie [Cantona] says, 'Ned, tell Alex [Ferguson] that Thierry Henry wants to come to the club'," Kelly told beIN Sports.

"Now this was before he [Henry] went to Arsenal, his first choice was Manchester United. So, I go to the boss and say, 'boss, I've just had Jean-Marie Cantona on the phone, he had said Henry wants to come to the club'.

"He [Ferguson] says, 'no way, he's always f****** injured'. He went to Arsenal, the rest is history."
