Thierry Henry has been named as the new head coach at Monaco.
The former Arsenal and France forward replaces Leonardo Jardim, WHO was despoiled by the Ligue one side on Thursday.
Henry started his career at principality, and has been working as assistant to Belgique boss Roberto Martinez.
Henry has signed a deal until June 2021 and said on Monaco’s website: “I am very happy to come back to Monaco and extremely determined to meet the challenges ahead.”
Jardim had led Monaco to the French title in 2017.
However, last year’s Ligue one runners-up have struggled this season, sitting eighteenth and with only 1 win all told competitions.
Henry will make his first steps into management, when a rumored switch to Bordeaux over the summer ne’er materialised.
