'I learned a lot about myself': Thierry Henry aims to bounce back from Monaco failure as Montreal manager
- Henry has signed a two-year deal with Montreal with the possibility to extend it for another season.
- Our legend admits he failed to deliver at Monaco.
- However, the Frenchman says he has gained valuable experience there.
"You have to start somewhere. That’s how you acquire experience. For me, it came with Belgium and Monaco, where I learned a lot about myself.
"It’s about fighting. This isn’t just my story but the story of everyone in life. Everyone falls. It's about how you get up.
"It didn’t work out in Monaco (as a coach). I can give you a lot of excuses but at the end of the day it didn’t work out and I am here as a coach of Montreal.
"I learned a lot there. The only mistake you can make is not learning from what happened. You have to confront it."
Thierry Henry was appointed as Ligue 1 side's head coach in October 2018. The ex-Gunner decided it was time to start his own managerial career following his work as assistant coach to Roberto Martinez at Belgium.
However, the Frenchman didn't last long in a new role. In January 2019 after a few months at the helm of the club, he was sacked after a run of poor results (4 wins, 5 draws and 11 defeats).
