An opinion poll conducted by the BBC has found that the Arsenal team and its captain Thierry Henry are the most admired players in English football. About 90% of the people interviewed confirmed that they regularly watched the English Premier League. Manchester United came second and Chelsea third. However, Drogba was the only African player to make the top ten. Told of the poll, an Arsenal spokesperson said: “As a club we are thrilled so many football fans in Africa pick Arsenal and Henry as their favourite. We work hard to maintain links with supporters worldwide, through community outreach projects and supporter initiatives, and hope that those links grow stronger over the coming seasons.”
