Monaco has won one game in all competitions this season.

A matter of days after being ruled out of the running for the job at Villa Park, it emerged that Henry was in "extremely advanced" talks with Monaco over their top post, following the sacking of Leonardo Jardim.

Kim Chang-ho, the fastest person to climb the world's 14 highest mountains without using supplemental oxygen, is among the dead. The base camp, which is at least one-day's trek from the nearest village, is at 3,500m (11,483ft), on the 7,193m-high mountain.

"First of all, I thank AS Monaco for giving me the opportunity to coach the team of this club which is so special to me", Henry said.

The 44-year-old also guided Monaco to the Champions League semi-finals in 2016-17 and helped develop players such as Paris St-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe, Atletico Madrid's Thomas Lemar, and Manchester City pair Bernardo Silva and Benjamin Mendy. In July he helped the team finish third at the World Cup.

Henry, 41, started out playing for Monaco, making 105 appearances and scoring 20 goals from 1994 to 1999.

The Champions League triumphs of Madrid under Zidane, the stunning La Liga title win for Atletico under Simeone and the golden era of Barcelona supremacy under Guardiola are all reflective of the potential for success with such a model of club management.
