As Monaco officially appointed Thierry Henry as the new coach to replace Leonardo Jardim. Leonardo was sacked from Monaco's coach seat due to Monaco's poor results at the start of the 2018-2019 season. Currently, Les Rouge et Blanc, nicknamed As Monaco stranded in 18th place in the French League standings, and only managed to win once from nine matches at the start of this season.

Arsenal legend is known, Thierry Henry will be signed by Monaco until June 2021. "Thierry Henry officially became the new coach of AS Monaco," said an official statement of AS Monaco via Twitter, quoted from Liputan6, Saturday, October 13, 2018.

For the Frenchman, As Monaco is his first club as a head coach. Although previously Henry was an assistant to the Belgian national team coach, Roberto Martinez assisted Henry. He had long stated that he really wanted to be a coach. Henry had previously also been a football observer on Sky Sports after retiring. He also had the target of Aston Villa to replace Steve Bruce. But the Aston Villa camp finally dropped its choice to Dean Smith.

Until finally Henry was asked to become a coach at As Monaco. For Henry, Monaco is not a foreign place, because this former Juventus player started his professional career with Monaco.
