Mikel Arteta answered Thierry Henry, who said that he is not sure the team is going in the right direction, and said that Henry's opinion is "just another opinion" and that he will respect it.
The Spanish manager spoke to the press ahead of the game against Crystal Palace on Monday in the Premier League.
Henry, in an Amazon Prime event, said that he has watched every Arsenal game this season and that despite the latest results, he is "not sure the team is going in the right direction".
"I didn't hear it", said Arteta. "But it is just another opinion. I have to respect it", he said.
Arsenal started the season with three consecutive defeats, but now, the Gunners are on a five-game undefeated streak, including their great win against Tottenham Hotspur in the North London Derby.
"When you are in form, on a good streak, you want to play as soon as possible, but we knew we had to stop for a couple of games in the international break. Now the only thing left to do is to keep getting better", he said.
