Thierry Henry makes an outrageously premature Alberto Moreno comparison
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.
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.
Thierry Henry comparing Alberto Moreno to Roberto Carlos represents everything wrong with bald people's opinions.

Did I just hear Thierry Henry compare Alberto Moreno with Roberto Carlos? Next he'll be comparing Steve McClaren with Pep Guardiola #NEWLIV

Moreno cost us a goal in the last match.
Yet he gets compared to Roberto Carlos one of the best LB's ever!
Awful punditry by Henry!

"Alberto Moreno = Roberto Carlos"
-->"Origi = Rivaldo"
-->"Flanagan = Cafu"
Liverpool 2015 is Brazil 2002
