Monaco appoints Arsenal legend Thierry Henry

have appointed legend as their new manager, while ’s Under-18 head coach Kwame Ampadu has been announced as part of his staff.

Henry will take his first steps into management at the club where he began his professional career, and has signed a three-year contract.

The Frenchman obviously went on to greater heights, joining Juventus, then the Gunners and then Barcelona, but he spent six years with the Principality club and is delighted to be making a return.

“In the first place, I thank AS for giving me the opportunity to coach the team of this club which is so special to me,” he said.

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

Henry had worked alongside former Everton boss Roberto Martinez in the Belgium set-up, and helped the side to a third-placed finish at the World Cup in Russia.

Vadim Vasilyev, Monaco’s vice president, has already waxed lyrical about the appointment, made after the sacking of Leonardo Jardim earlier this week.

“His knowledge of football, his passion for the game, his high standards and his commitment to our colours make his nomination a reality,” he 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 the mission.”
