Thierry Henry has been sent reinforcements as he continues his faltering bid to save Monaco from relegation in a French football league weekend which returns to a full programme of fixtures after weeks of disruption brought on by nationwide protests and a terrorist attack.
Henry’s Monaco are 19th, three points away from safety heading into the last round of matches before the winter break, and host bottom-club Guingamp on Saturday as they look for just their fourth win of a miserable campaign.
On Thursday they recruited a veteran coach Franck Passi to flank the decorated former Arsenal and France striker, who came to Ligue 1 from youth football at Arsenal and Benfica.
Henry Called the appointment “added value” and claimed that he and the club “wanted to have this band (together) for a little while” as they look to escape the drop less than two years after beating all-conquering Paris Saint-Germain to the league title and getting to the semi-finals of the Champions League.
