Louis Saha
Louis Saha "one of the top ten footballers in the U.K".

Louis Saha of Fulham has been listed again as one of the best footballers in England. This time it is by The Observer which rates Louis 9th best in the country. Their list was

1 Steven Gerrard
2 Henrik Larsson
3 David Beckham
4 Roy Keane
5 Patrick Vieira
6 Marcus Stewart
7 Paul Scholes
8 Lee Bowyer
9 Louis Saha
10 Ashley Cole

Described by a senior Observer correspondent as the 'prettiest footballer in Britain, just gorgeous', Saha represents everything Mohamed Fayed wants from his expensive Fulham hobby: flash, French and full of potential. Has sliced open defences across England with a brutal combination of power, speed and skill. Brought up alongside Thierry Henry and Nicolas Anelka at the famous Clarefontaine academy - he played up front with Anelka for the French U-17s - he's capable of becoming better than either. Watch him fly next season.

Cost: £2.1m, from Metz, June 2000

Worth: £10m

Quotable: 'I never expected him to be this good. He has ability from head to toe and he's quicker than Michael Owen. - Karlheinz Riedle
