Arsenal legend Thierry Henry is a big fan of Sporting Kansas City striker Teal Bunbury.
Henry's New York Red Bulls face Kansas City this weekend.
“He’s a powerful kid, great runs, always running, putting pressure on a defender. Hopefully we can deal with him on Saturday. But it’s going to be difficult,’’ Henry, who has three goals and two assists in the past two games, told the New York Post.
“Against Philadelphia I thought we had a good game, but we just didn’t put the ball in the back of the net. Then people were having a go at us,’’ Henry said. “I didn’t think we were that bad, and I don’t think we’re that great now. We just have to keep on going, carrying on playing.’’
Teal is the son of Alex Bunbury, the former West Ham United and Maritimo striker.
