Thierry Henry is the new manager of Monaco, sources have told ESPN FC.
The 2016-17 Ligue 1 champions sacked Leonardo Jardim earlier this week, with Henry, 41, selected to replace him. And sources confirmed on Friday that the former Arsenal and Barcelona star has signed a three-year deal with the principality club.
Henry, who started his career at Monaco and won the Ligue 1 title in 1997, had been serving as an assistant to Roberto Martinez at Belgium and was on the bench for Friday’s 2-1 UEFA Nations League victory over Switzerland.
He had previously been linked with the job at Aston Villa, who named Dean Smith as boss on Thursday.
