Harps Hails New Henry

Harps Hails New Henry

Reading don't need to be worried about relegation, according to midfielder James Harper, as they have uncovered the next Thierry Henry.

Harps, who may well have been drinking at the time, has revealed he sees a lot of the Barcelona man in the new Reading signing Jimmy Kebe.

He told the Reading Evening Post, 'Jimmy is a bit like Thierry Henry as he is lightening quick, elegant and tall. He certainly looks alright'.

Stephen Hunt pitched in, 'Jimmy looked promising when he came on.

'I haven't seen much of him to be honest, but it was a nice introduction away at Everton.

'I only saw him in training for the first time on Friday because I was away on international duty with Ireland.

'He looks positive and is very fast, but John Oster played well in the position too.'

Kebe almost made an immediate impact as a substitute ten minutes from time at Goodison Park on Saturday, but he was denied by a last gasp block from match winner Phil Jagielka.

With Harper seeing Kebe as a potential world beater and myself touting fellow new signing Marek Matejovsky as the next Pavel Nedved, there might be hope for the struggling Royals yet.
