Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has revealed that he does not believe that Chelsea’s Alvaro Morata is world-class, report Sky Sports.
Morata has enjoyed an electric start to life in the Premier League. The Spaniard has found the back of the net on six occasions in his first six appearances in a Chelsea shirt and has also provided two assists for his teammates.
Despite his good form, Sky Sports pundit Thierry Henry does not believe he can yet be considered among the world elite.
Sky Sports quote the Frenchman, who reveals out of Harry Kane, Sergio Aguero, Alvaro Morata and Romelu Lukaku, the Argentine is the closest to being world-class:
“The closest to being world class, or is world class, or has been world class is Aguero because of the longevity of what he has done in the Premier League year in, year out.”
Henry believes that Morata did not do enough during his time at Juventus to be considered world-class, as Sky Sports report:
“Morata, more often than not, came off the bench for Real Madrid and when he was at Juventus he had a good year but playing with Carlos Tevez or Fernando Llorente that wasn’t his team. He’s trying to make Chelsea his team just like Lukaku is trying to make United his team.”
Henry added while speaking on Sky Sports that he has ‘no doubt’ that Morata, and the rest of the aforementioned strikers, will one day be world-class:
“The others, I have no doubt will be. Kane himself said he’s not in that bracket yet because of the reasons I mentioned. We should be happy to have these guys in the Premier League.”
