Sharing is Caring

Former Arsenal and France forward Thierry Henry has been appointed as the new Head Coach of American Club Montreal Impact.

The 42 year old Frenchman was sacked as Monaco manager in January after a series of poor results. Henry played for Major League Soccer Club New York Red Bulls before retiring in December 2014.

Thierry Henry started his football career at French Club AS Monaco 1994 before joining Italian side Juventus in 1999. After a year, he joined Arsenal where he went on to play for 8 years winning two Premier League titles and two FA Cups at the London based club. He then joined Laliga giants Barcelona where he won 3 Spanish Laliga titles, Copa del Rey and Champions League in 20008/2009 season. In 2010, he joined New York Red Bulls which included a two-month loan at former club Arsenal.

Thierry Henry also won the World Cup with France in 1998 and won the European Championship in 2000.

After retiring from playing football, Henry joined Belgium coaching staff in 2016 before taking over as AS Monaco Head Coach in 2018 only to be sacked 3 months later.

Thierry Henry has signed a two year contract with Montreal Impact.                                      

‘’It’s an honour to coach Montreal Impact and return to the MLS. It’s a league I know very well, in which I had very nice moments. To be in Quebec, in Montreal, which has an enormous multicultural heritage, it’s extraordinary. I’ve always kept an eye on the club and now am here.’’ Said Henry.

Montreal Impact failed to make it to the playoffs last season and parted ways with Head Coach Wilmer Cabrera. His contract ran out at the end of the season.

Montreal Impact CEO said: ‘‘We are extremely happy to announce the nomination of this legend of the game. Henry will bring a new energy to our club and will help us achieve our goals on and off the field. He is a competitor and a leader who has proven himself at the highest level throughout his career. He now brings these qualities with him to Montreal, a place he wants to be.’’
