What They're Saying: Luis Binks

“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.

-- New Montreal Impact signing Luis Binks, an 18-year-old English youth international, on his new coach, Thierry Henry.

Binks runs the stairs to stay in shape but hasn't kicked a ball around with Henry in the hallways, saying, "I’ve seen him in training, he’d still beat me!" (Daily Mail)
