AS Monaco appoint Thierry Henry as the new manager

Thierry Henry

Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev added: "Thierry is both aware of the task ahead and eager to start his new job". The 2016/17 Ligue 1 winners are fighting in the relegation spots and have failed to open their account in the Champions League.

Monaco is now three places from last position in Ligue 1, France's top football league, and fired manager Leonardo Jardim on Thursday.

He'll be assisted by Joao Carlos Valado Tralhao and by Patrick Kwame Ampadu.

He had been working as assistant coach for the Belgian national team, including during the 2018 World Cup when Belgium reached the semi-finals.

Henry's first game in charge will be against Strasbourg next Saturday.

'I am very happy to come back to AS Monaco and extremely determined to meet the challenges ahead.

Jolly added. "We consciously did not put a camera on the Hub so you can use it in private spaces like your bedroom", she said. Google Assistant will interact with the caller as necessary, and the conversation is transcribed in real-time on the screen .

Henry, 41, played for Monaco for five seasons, winning a league title with them in 1997.

"I am excited to meet with the players and to start working together".

However, in many respects, the Monaco role is the ideal starting point from which Henry can begin his career as a manager by building a side in his own image and demonstrating the true impact of his presence at a club which truly needs such a positive influence.

Henry said it was "fate" that he had returned to the Principality club.

Henry became a club legend at the Gunners after joining in 1999 and is sure to still have a host of connections at the north London club that could aid him in his quest for strengthening the Monaco squad. He can count on our trust and all our support to bring a new dynamic to the team and carry out the mission'.

Henry had been linked with a move to Aston Villa following Steve Bruce's departure.
