BREAKING NEWS: Henry signs three-year Monaco deal

Thierry Henry

Monaco, October 13: Thierry Henry has signed a three-year deal to become Monaco's head coach.

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

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 Monaco for giving me the opportunity to coach the team of this club which is so special to me," he told to the club's official website.

"I am very happy to come back to AS Monaco 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 colors 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."
