  • Thierry Henry congratulates Eden Hazard

Portuguese boss Jardim was appointed in 2014 and led the club to the French title in 2017, their first since 2000.

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.

Henry will make his first steps into management, after a reported switch to Bordeaux over the summer never materialised.

However, last year's Ligue 1 runners-up have struggled this season, sitting 18th and with only one win in all competitions.

Henry knows Monaco well having graduated through the youth system and played for the Principality club between 1993-99.


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

Not only is the potential for Henry to inject Monaco with the kind of youthful hunger and vibrancy which is required to reboot Monaco a great boost for the club but, if successful, Henry's restoration project with the club may elevate his coaching reputation to the summit of Europe.

Henry was a World Cup victor with France in 1998 and won the European Championship two years later, scoring 51 goals in 123 appearances for Les Bleus.

The news that Thierry Henry would not be succeeding Steve Bruce as the next Aston Villa manager seemed to be a case of a blessing in disguise, and indeed a dodged bullet, for both Henry and Villa.

He will be joined at the club by Valado Tralhao, the Under-23s coach at Benfica, and Patrick Kwame Ampadu, who had been working at the Arsenal Academy. He can count on our trust and all our support to bring a new dynamic to the team and carry out its mission'.
