Will Henry return to management?

Former Monaco boss Thierry Henry has claimed that he still wants to be a manager, despite his disappointing spell in Ligue 1 last season.

Henry took over the Monaco job from Leonardo Jardim back in October 2018, following a horrendous start by the former champions.

It truly looked like they could be relegated, and Henry’s appointment looked set to get them back on the right track.

However, that’s not what happened.

Results didn’t improve, and Henry soon found him under intense pressure.

After Monaco had taken just 15 points from 21 games, Henry was suspended and eventually succeeded by the man he replaced, Leonardo Jardim.

But, even after his nightmare time in Monaco, Henry still wants to be a coach.

“I love football and I believe I can be a successful coach”

Speaking to the Telegraph, Henry explained that he wants to look at the positives, not the negatives.

As a result, Henry believes that he can still be a successful coach.

“I don’t think about the negative, I think about the positive. That’s why I went to Monaco and that’s why I still want to be a coach. You think about having a positive impact,” he told the Telegraph.

“Call me crazy if you want, but I love football and I believe I can be a successful coach.

“I’m not thinking about the pain, I’m not thinking about failure. I don’t like easy. I like to lead and it’s on me to make it happen. The same when I joined Arsenal as a player, the same when I went to Belgium with Roberto. It’s an evolution.”

Chelsea’s Tiemoue Bakayoko & Southampton’s Mario Lemina may soon join Monaco

Back at Monaco, Jardim is looking to put his troubles behind him.

The Ligue 1 side are even targeting Chelsea’s Tiemoue Bakayoko & Southampton’s Mario Lemina to turn around their fortunes.
