"I want to thank Monaco for giving me the opportunity to coach a club that is so special to me. I am very happy to come back to Monaco and extremely determined to meet the challenges ahead. I cannot wait to meet the players and start working together," he said.

Thierry Henry is expected to resume with the team after International break.
