The former Arsenal U-23 gaffer who is the father of Chelsea's Ethan Ampadu was poached by Thierry Henry after he had the nod to take charge of his former club on Saturday.

A statement on the club's website read, "AS Monaco announces the appointment of Thierry Henry as coach of the professional team".

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. "I can not wait to meet the players to start working together", said Thierry Henry.

Henry's first-class career was launched in 1994 by Monaco coach Arsene Wenger, who also five years later brought him to Arsenal.

When asked about how she mentioned she still has a "good marriage", Tom Llamas asked the First Lady if she loved her husband. She added that 'I am a mother as well as a first lady, and I have much more important matters to think about and do.

Emery has a track record of short managerial spells with clubs. However, last year's Ligue 1 runners-up have struggled this season, sitting 18th and with only one win in all competitions.

Henry became the latest member of the France squad that won the 1998 World Cup to fully embrace a coaching career, following Laurent Blanc, Didier Deschamps, Patrick Vieira, and Zinedine Zidane among others.

Henry had worked alongside former Everton boss Roberto Martinez in the Belgium set-up, and helped the side to a third-placed finish at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

"His knowledge of football, his passion for the game, his high standards and his commitment to our colours make his nomination a reality", Monaco chief executive Vadim Vasilyev said.

However, there is still a lot of young talent at Monaco and if Henry can find a way to hone that talent, it will be a matter of time that he start reaping the rewards of it.

Monaco has seen a mass exodus of star players in the past two years which has significantly lessened the quality of the team.

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