Thierry Henry was arguably one of the most talented players to have ever graced the Premier League, but if this short clip of some of the Gunners’ youth players is anything to go by he may have competition in the ‘greatest Arsenal player ever’ stakes.
Filmed at the club’s training ground, the UEFA Youth League stars show the cameras just a few of their skills. Although the majority of the video showcases some pretty amazing natural talent, we’re also made very aware that even up and coming professional footballers are prone to a howler or two.
Arsenal currently top their UEFA Youth League group, which contains the same teams Arsenal’s first team face in their Champions League group.
In stark contrast to Arsene Wenger’s men however, the youths are showing how it’s done and only need one more point against Dinamo Zagreb to secure top spot while their first team colleagues need to claim three points against Dinamo to even have a chance of avoiding being knocked out.
Perhaps Wenger needs to turn to some of these young stars in order to turn the tide of Arsenal’s dreadful Champions League campaign?
