Henry predicts great future for Arsenal youngster and for Spurs new signing

By 1970’s Gooner

Thierry Henry traveled to Mexico yesterday as part of his promotional duties to launch a new football boot.

He also gave his thoughts on the country's two young starlets who may be facing each other in the North London derbies this coming season.

Carlos vela, who will be joining Arsenal for his first pre-season training, has impressed Henry as both were playing in the Spanish League last season.

"Carlos is a very good player. He demonstrated this year with Osasuna what a good player he is and he can do great things in the English championship" he said during the press conference.

He also had very good words to say about Giovanni Dos Santos who was his team mate at Barcelona last season.

"Giovani has everything to be a success at Tottenham. He has speed and can change the course of a game with his genius. He can in two, three or four years be one of the best players in the world if he wants”

Carlos Vela was absent from Arsenal’s first gathering at London Colney for pre-season having been given an added week’s rest due to his involvement with Mexico’s national side.

He took part in a series of friendlies against Peru and Argentina before helping his country beat Belize in a double qualifier for the World Cup with an aggregate score of 9-0. He scored in both games.

He will only have a week’s training behind him before the friendly against Barnet on the 19th July but the Mexican media are expecting that he may participate in that game.

The team will then travel to Burgenland, Austria, for their annual training camp. They will face Szombathelyi and Burgenland.

On July 30, Vela will meet with fellow Mexicans Pavel Pardo and Ricardo Osorio, when Arsenal meet Stuttgart in the Mercedes Benz Arena.

They will then return to London, where they will face Juventus and Real Madrid in the Emirates Cup and then play Huddersfield.

In the second week of August the Gunners will visit Amsterdam to participate in a tournament against Ajax and Seville.

It will be interesting to see Carlos in action in an Arsenal shirt.

Obviously Henry thinks that Spurs got the better youngster

I remember Henry saying that Quincy was one to watch. Three years on, I just wouldn't know where to watch him.

sales...hear you can see him on itv1 late nights sometimes, but I'd personally recommend CSI.

he probably just knows dos santos better from being teammates on barca

Dos Santos looks lazy and slow to me but, Vela looks hard-working and sharp. Anyway only Arsene knows what ingredients the chef exactly needs, not henry !

I don't consider Barcelona as a role model; This year It went so wrong they sacked the fact they are now trying to buy half our team to rebuild for next year... enlightning.

Henry should said Dos Santos is a flop and He will succumb to obscurity in a few weeks.

How hard is it to be a success at Spurs? You only have to find your way onto the pitch, half their players can't manage that!
