Monaco were beaten 2-1 by Strasbourg in their first game under Henry, but they have reasons for positivity
Thierry Henry went into his first match as Monaco manager missing his two best goalkeepers, three of his four best central defenders, and attacking midfielder Rony Lopes, their second top scorer last season. It should also be remembered that Henry was taking the second-bottom team in the division to the Stade de la Meinau to face a Strasbourg side whose attack have been in sparkling form recently. It was no great surprise then that Thierry Laurey’s well-organised side won 2-1, yet Henry’s first game in charge provided much food for thought about his managerial future.
