has “everything” needed to become a good manager, coach and former international teammate said of the newly-named coach.

“Thierry’s ready,” Deschamps told TF1. “He has everything” to be a good coach.

“He’s throwing himself into an exciting, exhilarating project where he’ll have to take responsibility. It’ll be up to him to take the reins.”

Former Arsenal star Henry was named coach on Saturday, his first job in club management after leaving his position with the Belgian national team.

The 41-year-old French winner, who had been working as an assistant to coach since 2016, returns to the club where he began his professional career.

Henry replaces Leonardo Jardim, who in 2017 guided Monaco to their first Ligue 1 title since 2000. He was sacked on Thursday after a string of poor results left Monaco in the relegation places.

“The first season was very complicated,” he said, wishing Henry “lots of courage and big success”.
