Thierry Henry: Former Arsenal Striker Appointed New Monaco Head Coach
Former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry has been appointed as head coach of Monaco until June 2021.
Henry started his career at Monaco, and has been working as an assistant to the Belgium manager Roberto Martínez.
Following his appointment, Henry posted a statement on Instagram that read: “It is with great pride that I am delighted to announce that I have accepted the position to become the manager of AS Monaco FC.
“I was fortunate to receive some very attractive offers over the last few months but Monaco will always be close to my heart. Having started my footballing career with this great club, it seems like fate that I will now begin my managerial career here too.
“I’m incredibly excited to be given this opportunity but now the hard work must begin. Can’t wait.”
Henry’s first game in charge will be against Strasbourg in the league on 20 October, before a Champions League tie with Club Brugge four days later.
