Arsenal legend opens up and admits praise for exciting Liverpool star

Jordon Ibe has won praise from Arsenal legend Thierry Henry for his performance for Liverpool on Sunday.

The 19-year old stepped out in a right wing-back position for Brendan Rodgers at Southampton and impressed with a brilliant showing in the 2-0 win.

As quoted on the Sky Sports website, Henry said: “It was an amazing performance.

“It wasn’t the step overs and nutmegs but he showed maturity in a game like that at an early age, it’s his maturity to understand the game.

“The way he was tucking in to show he can cover his back three and the midfielders, he never gave up, he worked hard for his teammates and that’s how you gain the respect of teammates.

“That is why he is playing for Liverpool.”
