Walsall boss Dean Smith has today admitted he doesn’t believe there are any other left sided – eighteen year olds in this country better than Rico Henry.
Henry has been in fantastic form this campaign and has kept out Fordey and Milan from regular games following his impressive performances.
Smith said “Rico fully deserves it; he has been excellent,’
‘He`s a pleasure to coach and a pleasure to have around the place, not just as a footballer but as a person.
“He`s a quick learner; you give him a bit of information and he takes it on board.
‘I`ve recommended him to England U19s because if there is a better left-sided player in the country at 18 years of age I`d like to see them.”
