Former Spurs Youngster Is Spending Lockdown In Same Hotel As Thierry Henry

Former Spurs Youngster Is Spending Lockdown In Same Hotel As Thierry Henry

Lockdown in Montreal has led to a former Spurs youngster spending lockdown with Arsenal's greatest ever player.

Despite Jose Mourinho wanting him to stay, 18-year old Luis Binks left Tottenham for Montreal Impact in February and has made four appearances for the club.

Manning the dug-out for the MLS outfit is the one and only Thierry Henry, who took his second managerial job in November.

Months on, with everything in the world on lockdown due to the coronavirus outbreak, Gillingham-born Binks now finds himself spending more time with the iconic Frenchman than he would have imagined.

In a very unusual set of circumstances amidst the current situation, Binks and Henry are the only two guests currently staying at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Downtown Montreal.

Inevitably they frequently bump into one another, especially when they pop down to collect their food deliveries.

'He is one of the big reasons I came here, so I just want to pick his brains. I was asking him the other day about the best defenders he's played against - he was telling me all about Alessandro Nesta and Lilian Thuram.

"So it's just me and the manager, there are no new guests coming in and all the others have moved out. He hasn't invited me down to his room yet, but I bet he's got the big suite!"

Although they are crossing paths on a regular basis, the England Under 18 defender says he has no interest in a quarantine kickabout over fears he'd be embarrassed.

"I don't think I'd want to, I've seen him in training, he'd still beat me!" Binks added.

We just hope that Binks is tucking chairs in or else he risks getting the death stare from his manager. Just ask Monaco youngster Benoît Badiashile, who felt Henry's secondary school-like wrath in 2018.
