Thierry Henry Loses First Game At Monaco

Monaco’s new manager Thierry Henry suffered defeat in his first match after his 10-man side slumped to a 2-1 loss at Strasbourg on Saturday to drop into the Ligue 1 relegation zone.

The principality club has failed to win in 11 games in all competitions since the opening weekend of the French top-flight season, and are only above bottom team Guingamp on goal difference.

Henry took over Monaco, who were runners-up to PSG last season in a bad state this campaign and they are now 24 points adrift of the reigning champions after they cruised to a 5-0 thrashing of Amiens at the Parc des Princes despite resting several key players.

There have been debates on if the former Arsenal striker will be able to turn the situation around.

In his reaction, Henry said; “It wasn’t easy, we tried to put something in place which worked at the beginning, and then we conceded that goal that I don’t need to describe… Human error, I don’t want to wipe the floor with anyone.

“Then we tried to change the game, and unfortunately Sam (Grandsir) is sent off. After that it was even harder, but we still tried to keep playing.

“But I want to keep positive despite the negatives.The game could have turned in our favour, but it didn’t. In addition, we lost (Radamel) Falcao at the beginning. It wasn’t the dream scenario.”
