Former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry has admitted that former France teammate Louis Saha told him that Cristiano Ronaldo was going to be a star of the future, but he didn’t believe him.
‘There’s always big talk about Ronaldo, and his attitude and all of that,’ Henry said to Sky sports as a guest during Wednesday’s Champions League night. ‘At one point you have to stop talking about the attitude and looking at the stats and what he’s been doing, and stop talking. And just watch. What he’s been doing is crazy.
‘Louis Saha used to tell me back in the day, that Ronaldo would be the best in the world for a very long time. I was like, okay, let’s see. Because you know, I didn’t know. And Louis said, you know the way he works, is unbelievable. And you have to give him his credit.’
