Thierry Henry makes an outrageously premature Alberto Moreno comparison

Twitter as having none of it!

Remember Roberto Carlos? One of the best full backs ever to step foot on a football pitch?

Yeah, well Alberto Moreno is just like him, right?

Now presuming you’ve either fainted, spat out your drink or smashed your phone in anger… settle down.

Roberto Carlos

We’re not comparing a 23-year-old decent left-back to one of the greatest of all time.

But Thierry Henry sure is.

The Sky Sports pundit told Ed Chamberlain and Didi Hamann that Liverpool’s Moreno “has been unbelievable, he has changed everything. He is looking like Roberto Carlos on the left flank from back in the day.”

Having heard the over-the-top praise, Twitter did what Twitter does.
