Thierry Henry has landed his first official Managerial role, taking over the floundering Monaco in the French league.
Leonardo Jardim was relieved of his role after a disastrous start to the season, and Henry was offered the job last week which he immediately accepted.
Monaco are third from bottom of the league with just six points and fast losing touch in Ligue 1, something Thierry Henry will be keen to remedy and fast.
Thierry Henry has been playing second fiddle to Roberto Martinez for the Belgian national team and has been doing his coaching badges in the past few months.
Monaco’s Chief Executive Vadim Vasilyev said:
“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. Steering the side away from the relegation zone will be Henry’s first target…”
Henry’s first games in charge will be against Strasbourg in the league, and then a game against FC Bruges in the Champions League.
Good luck Terrence!
