Thierry Henry appointed head coach of French club Monaco

Thierry Henry appointed head coach of French club Monaco

The 41-year-old French World Cup victor, who had been working as an assistant to Belgium coach Roberto Martinez since 2016, returns to the club where he began his professional career. Having started my footballing career with this great club, it seems like fate that I will now begin my managerial career here too.

In a club statement, Henry said: 'In the first place, I thank AS Monaco for giving me the opportunity to coach the team of this club which is so special to me.

AS Monaco, last season's runners-up, are 18th in the 20-team Ligue 1 table after winning one of their first nine games.

Thierry Henry has now returned to the club where he started his career in 1993 before leaving in 1999 after 141 games scoring 28 goals.

Thierry Henry has been appointed by AS Monaco as the Ligue 1 club's new head coach, replacing Leonardo Jardim.

He was unable to escape in his next service game as Zverev broke De Minaur to take a 4-3 lead. Lendl is due to return to the tour before the end of the season.

Then came a move to Barcelona, where he won the treble of La Liga, Copa del Rey and Champions League in 2008-09.

Not only is the potential for Henry to inject Monaco with the kind of youthful hunger and vibrancy which is required to reboot Monaco a great boost for the club but, if successful, Henry's restoration project with the club may elevate his coaching reputation to the summit of Europe.

Should Emery spend a similar duration of time at Arsenal, by the time the Spaniard's job is done at the Emirates, Henry may just have gained the level of experience and the coaching pedigree required to make the step up to the club that he still feels passionately for.

Henry will be assisted by Patrick Kwame Ampadu who was previously Arsenal's U18 coach.

"Thierry is both aware of the task ahead and eager to start his new job". He can count on our trust and all our support to bring a new dynamic to the team and carry out its mission'.
