Thierry Henry named as Monaco manager

Official: Thierry Henry appointed as the new manager of Monaco

The Arsenal icon replaced Leonardo Jardim, who was fired earlier this week after the club's horrendous start to the campaign.

Thierry Henry's first big managerial role has finally come. The French icon has officially been appointed as the new Monaco boss, replacing Leonardo Jardim.

This means the Arsenal legend will leave his role as the assistant coach of the Belgium national team. He worked alongside Roberto Martinez to guide the Red Devils to a third-place finish at the 2018 World Cup but will bid farewell.

The 41-year-old had long been linked with the Stade Louis II position since the departure of Leonardo Jardim. The Portuguese tactician who led Les Rouge et Blanc to the Ligue 1 title and Champions League semi-final in 2016/17 endured a horrendous start to the current campaign, with the club lurking in the 18th spot due to only one win in their opening nine games.

This resulted in Jardim's departure and Henry's subsequent appointment. The Frenchman agreed to a three-year deal with his former team which will keep him in Ligue 1 until 2021.

Speaking about his return, Henry expressed nothing but enthusiasm to be back at Monaco. He told their official website

"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. I am very happy to come back to AS Monaco and extremely determined to meet the challenges ahead. I can not wait to meet the players to start working together."

During his playing career at Stade Louis II, Henry made 141 appearances and scored 28 goals. He won the top-flight title in 1996-97 before leaving France to join Juventus nearly two years later.

The two-time Premier League winner had been linked with an array of clubs before joining Monaco. He was tipped to take over Bordeaux and then Aston Villa, but neither of those moves worked out.

His first task will be to guide Falcao and Co. out of their current slump. With five losses out of nine games in Ligue 1, a lot of work is needed to turn around their fortunes.
