The 41-year-old French World Cup victor, who had been working as an assistant coach for the Belgian national team since 2016, signed a contract with Monaco through until June 2021. On Thursday, club officials chose to turn things around at the helm by sacking manager, Leonardo Jardim.

"Monaco will always be close to my heart", he added.

Henry has signed a three-year deal with Monaco and spoke of his delight at the move this morning.

The former Arsenal and France forward replaces Leonardo Jardim, who was sacked by the Ligue 1 side on Thursday. "I'm incredibly excited to be given this opportunity but now the hard work must begin".

As Henry stood on the touchlines during a Belgium v Switzerland Nations League game on Friday, the website of L'Equipe said the 1998 World Cup victor "has agreed" to a three-year deal with the club and would be unveiled after the weekend.

I like to read good articles and a passionate football fan. Let us know in the comments section below. I could deserve it too, lets not lie.

Vadim Vasilyev, Monaco's vice president, has already waxed lyrical about the appointment, made after the sacking of Leonardo Jardim earlier this week.

Henry was with Belgium on Friday as they beat Switzerland 2-1 in the Nations League.

"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. "He can count on our trust and all our support to bring a new dynamic to the team and carry out its mission".

Henry will now turn his attention to forming his coaching staff and it has been announced he will be joined by Joao Tralhao, the Benfica Under-23 coach, and Patrick Kwame Ampadu, coach at the Arsenal academy.

'Thierry is both aware of the task ahead and eager to start his new job.
