Thierry Henry is the new manager of Monaco, sources have told ESPN FC.

Monaco's Portuguese coach Leonardo Jardim (L) speaks to Monaco's Russian midfielder Aleksandr Golovin (back) during the French L1 football match between Monaco (ASM) and Nimes (NO) on September 21, 2018, at the Louis II Stadium in Monaco.

AS Monaco, last season's runners-up, are 18th in the 20-team Ligue 1 table after winning one of their first nine games.

Henry began his professional football career in 1999, where he 125 appearances, registering 25 goals in the process. Having progressed through the youth ranks with Les Monegasques to make the grade at the Stade Louis II, Henry bears the club in his DNA.

Thierry Henry has been named as the new manager of AS Monaco and the Frenchman is already set to be lining up potential transfer targets as he looks to drag the club out of the bottom three in Ligue 1.

Then came a move to Barcelona, where he won the treble of La Liga, Copa del Rey and Champions League in 2008-09.

"In the first place, I thank AS Monaco for giving me the opportunity to coach the team of this club so special to me", his statement read.

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 Frenchman was part of the Belgium team that won bronze medal at this summer's FIFA World Cup staged in Russian Federation few months back.

The 41-year-old former French striker took up his new job just 2 days after Leonardo Jardim was sacked following a poor start to the season.

Patrick Kwame Ampadu, a coach at Arsenal's academy and father of Chelsea and Wales player Ethan Ampadu, will join Henry's coaching staff, alongside Benfica Under-23 coach Joao Carlos Valado Tralhao. He can count on our trust and all our support to bring a new dynamic to the team and carry out the mission'.
