Emile Heskey Forgets How Good He Is!

Emile Heskey Forgets How Good He Is!

A few reports today including in the Guardian and The Mirror quote Gerard Houllier saying that Emile Heskey forgets how good he is and that he should be up there with Didier Drogba.

Houllier said: "Didier Drogba is a fantastic centre-forward who is probably the best in the world. But we have a centre-forward who can do the same. Emile is strong, quick and is powerful and has some attributes that look like Didier. He doesn`t seem to use them as well though. Emile sometimes forgets how good he can be.'

The Guardian article by Stuart James has further quotes from the Villa boss, 'Emile is strong, quick, powerful. It's mainly a matter of faith in himself. In terms of skill, he does things in training that you would be amazed and surprised.'

'Emile has got some attributes that look like Didier, but he doesn't seem to use them. When he uses them, he's the centre-forward you saw in the last few games.' Adding, 'He's strong physically but he doesn't use his strength. Sometimes he can do better with that.'

So true, same can be said for John Carew as well I think. They have it all apart from either the aggression or the belief, or sometimes seemingly the interest?
