Thierry Henry probably has the credibility to decide which strikers are truly world class or not.
The Arsenal legend turned Sky Sports pundit scored 174 Premier League goals for the Gunners and is widely regarded as the club’s greatest ever player.
And Henry, along with co-analyst Jamie Carragher, has been reflecting on the variety of attacking talent the Premier League now showcases.
The likes of Romelu Lukaku, Sergio Aguero, Harry Kane and Alvaro Morata have all started their seasons brilliantly and scored again in their clubs’ respective wins over the weekend.
But for Henry, only one Premier League striker can really be deemed as world class.
When Sky Sports anchorman Dave Jones mentioned the phrase when comparing the four strikers’ recent statistics, Henry quipped: “Say that again… world class?
“I think that the closest guy here, to being world class, has been world class and is world class is Aguero because of the longevity in this league year in year out.
“He won the league here. He’s been doing it the longest so you have to give him credit.
“I think sometimes we bypass Aguero as if he didn’t happen.
“The other three will be, but they are not yet.”
Is Henry right?
