HENRY IMPRESSED WITH WOLVES PERFORMANCE
Thierry Henry says he is impressed with the performance of Wolves at the London Colney on Saturday.
Wolves youngsters lost to the gunners by two goals to one in the encounter.
Jordan Allan scored for the Wolves team from an attack that was originated by goal keeper Harry Beasley. Edward Nketiah strikes canceled the goal and gave the Gunners youth teamthe victory.
Jerry Gill praised the Arsenal legend’s effort on the youth team. Gill said: “Thierry Henry has been doing some coaching with the young Arsenal players and was among the staff on the bench," he started.
“He came over to us after the game and was very humble and told us how impressed he was with the goal that we scored.
We were disappointed not to get a result but the performance level was high with a really young group and it gave us some positive stuff to look forward to next season. All in all it was a great game to be involved in and a very tactical game.”
On the goal that the team scored, Gill said: “The goal epitomised everything we are trying to be with Harry rolling the ball out and the involvement of several players passing the ball before Brad Carr came up with a good cutback which Jordan finished first time after coming off the centre back. It was a really good goal and came from something we do a lot of work on in terms of patterns of passing and repetition involved in that. It is no co-incidence that we have scored a really good and incisive goal.”
Gill, who was appointed summer last year to lead the Wolves academy, said: “We had further chances then having had spells of possession where we controlled the game and looked dangerous.”
