Thierry Henry should be European Player of the Year and NOT Fabio Cannavaro, at least that’s what Arsene Wenger is saying.
Arsenal fans would agree 100%, but what do you think? (Place your votes – Poll on the sidebar).
Cannavaro is a good player but did he deserved the European Player of the Year award? i mean take a look at Henry’s resume for last season, played in the ‘hardest’ league, reached the finals in Champs League and World Cup, stayed relatively free from injuries, banged in goals for fun, signed a new contract with Arsenal (loyalty is hard to come by) even though Barcelona came knocking.
Placing all that and maybe even more into consideration and you feel that Wenger might have a point after all.
‘It is a mistake,’ declared the Arsenal manager.
‘It shows that the people who vote look only at the World Cup, which when you speak about elite football, in my opinion, is the lowest level in football that you can see at the moment.
‘They make their decision on that.’
