Agency :
Former Arsenal star Thierry Henry was Thursday appointed coach at MLS franchise Montreal Impact on a two-year contract as he gets a new chance of management after a disastrous spell at Monaco.
"Welcome to Montreal @ThierryHenry!" the Major League Soccer (MLS) club tweeted. Henry, whose baptism by fire as a manager ended in his firing by French club Monaco in January, will coach Impact for a minimum of two seasons.
"Henry signed a two-year deal, with an option for 2022," the club said on its website.
Henry, 42, who helped France win the World Cup in 1998, is familiar with the MLS, having played from 2010 to 2014 with the New York Red Bulls.
He scored 51 goals and had 42 assists in 122 games with the club.
"It's an honour to coach the Montreal Impact and return to MLS," said Henry.
