The Ligue 1 side, AS Monaco appointed the former Arsenal striker, Thierry Henry as the new manager.

He had been working as assistant coach for the Belgian national team, including during the 2018 World Cup when Belgium reached the semi-finals.

Henry's backroom team will comprise of Kwame Ampadu, father of Chelsea star Ethan Ampadu, who worked with Henry during their time coaching together at Arsenal's academy, as well as Benfica Under-23 coach Joao Carlos Valado Tralhao.

During Jardim's reign alone, the club sold an astonishing £750 million worth of players with the majority of exits following their Ligue 1 title victory.

Henry will make his first steps into management, after a reported switch to Bordeaux over the summer never materialised.

"Of course, Thierry Henry is a good choice", said Wenger, who was speaking after coaching one of the teams in Per Mertesacker's farewell match in Hannover. I cannot wait to meet the players to start working together'.
