Henry taking positives from Monaco debut defeat – football news

Thierry Henry attempted to focus on the positive side of Monaco’s performance as they lost 2-1 to Strasbourg in his first match in charge.

The former Arsenal star replaced Leonardo Jardim as head coach last week but could not inspire them to avoid a fifth straight defeat on Saturday.

Adrien Thomasson opened the scoring for Strasbourg when goalkeeper Seydou Sy failed to keep out what appeared to be a routine header 17 minutes into the match.

An injury to Radamel Falcao and the sending-off of substitute Samuel Grandsir, who lasted just one minute and 51 seconds on the pitch, left Monaco with a mountain to climb before Lebo Mothiba made it 2-0 in the closing stages.

Youri Tielemans’ injury-time penalty offered only consolation to the visitors, but Henry insisted there was promising aspects to his side’s performance.

“We try to put something in place that worked from the start, and then we concede this goal that I don’t need to describe,” he said. “It’s a human error. I don’t want to overburden anyone.

“Then, we reacted, we had chances but we were losing 1-0 at half-time. We tried to reorganise the game, but unfortunately Sam was sent off. After that, it was even harder.

“I want to focus on the positive within the negative, otherwise we won’t move forward. The positive thing is that we tried to keep playing, even with 10 men.

“The game could have turned in our favour, but it didn’t. In addition, we lost [Radamel] Falcao at the beginning. It wasn’t the dream scenario.”

Henry’s second game is a trip to Club Brugge in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Henry: Wenger and Guardiola inspirations for my coaching career – football news

Thierry Henry has underlined the huge impact Arsene Wenger and Pep Guardiola had on him during his playing days as he embarks on a coaching career with Monaco.

The France legend was presented to the media on Wednesday after returning to the club where he started out as a professional.

It is Henry’s first management job, having been on the staff with Belgium, and he cited the lessons learned from Wenger at Arsenal and Guardiola at Barcelona as key to his own development as a coach.

“I learned from those I worked with, whether they challenged me, or whether sometimes they did the wrong thing,” said Henry, who has signed a three-year deal with the Ligue 1 club. 

“Arsene unlocked so many things in my mind – what it meant to be a professional, on how to perform.

“You learn from people, but also need to put your own mix into it.

“Pep for me is the reference. I re-learnt how to play the game when I went to Barcelona under him.

“With Pep you can just talk about the game and he will not go to sleep. You will fall asleep and he’s still talking.

“He is way ahead of the game.”

Following Henry’s spell under Guardiola in Spain, the former Barcelona boss has continued to prove himself among the world’s best managers, winning the Bundesliga three times with Bayern Munich before setting a record with Manchester City en route to last season’s Premier League title.

Wenger, meanwhile, stepped away from Arsenal in May, but is now preparing for a return to football following several months away from the game. 

The 41-year-old Henry takes the reins at a side languishing 18th in the table after Leonardo Jardim’s tenure fizzled out.

Henry knows there is hard work ahead, but he had no hesitation in accepting Monaco’s offer.

“For me when the offer came it was logical,” he said.

“This is where I started. This club will always have a big place in my heart, so to be able to come here and start again is a dream come true.”

Monaco the natural move for Henry – Martinez – football news

Thierry Henry starting his career as a head coach at Monaco was the “natural move” he had been waiting for, according to Belgium boss Roberto Martinez.

Former France and Arsenal star Henry began his playing career at Monaco and was announced as the successor to Leonardo Jardim on Saturday, signing a three-year contract.

The 41-year-old, who oversaw his first training session on Monday, had been working under Martinez with Belgium since August 2016 and the Spaniard backed his former number two to be a success at a club that means so much to him.

On Henry’s departure, Martinez told a news conference: “I don’t think it’s a loss. The initial project was to have Thierry’s experience preparing the group for the World Cup and we achieved that.

“After that it’s been great for Thierry to want to be with the national team until the natural move would appear. It wasn’t a case of leaving for the sake of it or trying to force a move.

“We’re all supportive because Monaco is his home, it’s where he started as a player and it’s a natural way to start his coaching career.

“He will be a top coach, there’s no two doubts about it; his obsession for the game, his experience, his know-how, but then we all hope he gets a bit of luck because you always need luck in football.”

Belgium take on Netherlands in a friendly on Tuesday and Martinez detailed plans to use a variety of players, while also disclosing that Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet could start.

Article continues below

Appointing a replacement for Henry is on the Spaniard’s agenda, something he hopes to have sewn up ahead of the next set of internationals in November.

“I think we need an extra body on the staff. The technical staff is very strong, we’ve been working now for a long time, but it’s important – maybe not for a short camp – but when you’re going into a big tournament that we need that extra body, but we’re going to take our time,” he said.

“It’s more assessing what the group needs – they aren’t the needs that were needed two years ago and we didn’t have the experience that we had in the World Cup. We will be adding someone for November.”

Monaco appoint Arsenal legend Henry – football news

Monaco have appointed Arsenal legend Thierry Henry as their new manager.

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 Monaco 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 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 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.”

Article continues below

Indeed, Henry’s task is a difficult one as he is charged with turning around the form of a side which have picked up only six points from nine Ligue 1 matches this season.

While it’s true that Monaco won the French title a mere 17 months ago, a mass of sales including Kylian Mbappe, Thomas Lemar, Fabinho, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Bernardo Silva has drastically reduced the quality of the squad.

Currently 18th in Ligue 1, Monaco return to action on October 20 with a trip to Strasbourg.

Deschamps reluctant to back Henry for Monaco job – football news

Didier Deschamps is reluctant to back Thierry Henry to take charge of Monaco as the Ligue 1 side are yet to part ways with Leonardo Jardim.

Reports in France have suggested Jardim, who led Monaco to the title in 2016-17, will be dismissed after a poor start to the current campaign.

Henry started out with Monaco before developing into one of the world’s top strikers at Arsenal, while he played with Deschamps for France during a glittering playing career.

The Belgium coach has been linked with taking over at Monaco but Deschamps referenced Henry previously being lined up for the Bordeaux job earlier in the year, only for the deal to fall apart.

“I don’t know if you always have the right information but so far nothing is official yet,” Deschamps told reporters. 

“It was the same case in Bordeaux at the beginning of the season. But I wish him [Henry] all the best.

“’Titi’ has taken some time to make his choice, he is doing well with Belgium. If he gets this opportunity, which is not confirmed yet, he should jump in the deep end at some point.

Article continues below

“So let’s wait and see. Maybe tomorrow you’ll tell me that he is not going to Monaco eventually.

“And there is still a coach. Leonardo Jardim is the coach, even if I like Thierry Henry I don’t want to anticipate things as I respect Jardim. I’m not sure it would happen as everyone is announcing.”

Henry quit his role as a television pundit this year to concentrate on his coaching career.

Thierry Henry holds talks with Aston Villa over vacant manager job – football news

Aston Villa have held talks with Thierry Henry as they look to bring in a new manager to replace sacked Steve Bruce, GBP Sports can confirm.

Bruce had led the Championship side to the promotion play-offs in the 2017-18 season, eventually losing to Fulham in the final, but a rapid dip in form in the new term forced the Birmingham club into action.

One particularly disgruntled supporter threw a cabbage at Bruce in his final match in charge, a 3-3 draw with Preston North End after relinquishing a two-goal lead.

Operating in much the same way as he did during talks to take over at Bordeaux, Henry has been seeking assurances over his influence over transfers and player budget should he take over at Villa Park.

The Frenchman will need guarantees from the Villans, however, with the former Arsenal and Barcelona striker having turned down the Bordeaux role due to financial reasons.

Joe DaGrosa, head of GACP, Bordeaux’s owners, told L’Equipe at the time: “We had hoped to reach an agreement with Thierry Henry, but sometimes reasonable people can disagree. That’s what happened. I have a lot of respect for him. 

Thierry Henry Bordeaux

“He was a great player and he has a very interesting career plan, but we took a financial decision and not an emotional one.”

John Terry, who most recently turned out for Villa before failing to secure a move to another club, announced his retirement from playing football on Sunday and has been mooted as Henry’s assistant.

There are no certainties over whether Terry will be offered the role, though the former Chelsea captain has made no secret of his desire to turn his hand to coaching.

Article continues below

Elsewhere, Brendan Rodgers, who had come under some scrutiny following Celtic’s poor start to the season, has ruled himself out of the running for the job.

In terms of Henry’s current role as assistant coach of the Belgium national team, it is understood that the FA will not stand in the 41-year-old’s way if he decided to take Villa up on their offer.

As yet, however, the country’s governing body have not received a formal approach from the Championship side.

Rodgers rules himself out of battle with Henry for Aston Villa job – football news

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has ruled himself out of the running for a vacant managerial post at Aston Villa.

The Northern Irishman is among those to have been mooted as a possible target for the Championship club following their decision to part with Steve Bruce.

Arsenal icon Thierry Henry and Chelsea legend John Terry have been mentioned as other candidates, with it possible that they could work together, and they have seen the path cleared in front of them.

Rodgers, who has previously spent time with Swansea and Liverpool, has no desire to leave his position in Scotland, even for a role at an ambitious side eyeing up a return to the Premier League.

He told BBC Scotland after overseeing a 6-0 victory for his current employers over St. Johnstone: “I’m the Celtic manager and I love it and have lots of challenges here.

“There is always speculation around lots of names.

“Villa is a top Premier League club in the Championship and I’m sure with their support base and resources they will try and get back there as quickly as they can.”

Rodgers recently admitted to having received several offers to leave Celtic during his reign at Parkhead.

He has never entered into any talks, with a lucrative approach from China among those to have been knocked back.

“Since I have been at Celtic I have had a few offers, ” Rodgers said in September amid an uncharacteristically slow start starting to the 2018-19 campaign for the Hoops.

“So [China] is no different to any of the others.

“My focus is very much on Celtic, trying to help us rise to the challenge of this season.

Article continues below

“What you know with China is it’s an awful lot of money, big money, but I have found happiness here. I spoke to the owners of the club and the board and we find an agreement and move on.

“I have had other opportunities but I am very much here, I have this year and two more years on my contract.

“Unless they get fed up with me or something else happens I am very privileged to be here.”

Henry & Vieira made me fall in love with Arsenal as a kid – Guendouzi – football news

Matteo Guendouzi did not expect to be on Arsenal’s books at 19 years of age, but admits that iconic figures such as Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira made him dream of one day representing the club.

Having grown up on the outskirts of Paris, the highly-rated midfielder hoped to one day find himself turning out in the French capital.

He was part of Paris Saint-Germain’s academy system for several years after seeing his potential noted early on, but moved on to Lorient in order to make a senior breakthrough.

A rapid rise to prominence has now taken him to England, with Arsenal having moved to secure his services in a £7 million ($9m) deal over the summer.

With the Gunners having boasted strong French ties down the years, with Arsene Wenger bringing several countrymen on board during his time in north London, Guendouzi is delighted to have fulfilled another childhood ambition by making his way to Emirates Stadium.

He told L’Equipe: “PSG was the club of my heart in France because I played there between the ages of six and 15.

“Growing up, I watched other teams and I fell in love with Arsenal.

“I wasn’t really interested in posters but I saw many, many videos.

“Players like Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira made me love the club and I dreamt of going there.

“When I see the Emirates and the statue of Henry, I think back to those videos.

“From the moment Arsenal made an approach, everything was clear for me.

Article continues below

“I’m not going to lie, I thought it would happen later in my career. But joining such a club at 19, any player would like that.”

Guendouzi has made a positive impression at Arsenal, with Unai Emery have placed considerable faith in a player who arrived in England with limited top-flight experience to his name.

Just eight Ligue 1 appearances had been taken in with Lorient before their relegation in 2016-17, but the youngster has settled quickly into Premier League life – starting all five of the Gunners’ league outings to date.
