Thierry Henry has been appointed as the new head coach of MLS side Montreal Impact.
The former coach of Monaco has signed a two-year deal with the option for an extra 12 months.
The 42-year-old spent four-and-a-half years with the New York Red Bulls before ending his career in 2014.
Henry in a comment said: “It’s an honour to coach the Montreal Impact and return to MLS. It’s a league I know well, in which I had some 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 I’m here.”
Montreal president and CEO Kevin Gilmore express delight towards the appointment.
“Henry will bring a new energy to our club. He shares our vision to elevate this club and will help us achieve our goals on and off the field.
Henry took his first management deal with Monaco last season but won just four of his 20 matches in charge and was sacked after only three months.
