Thierry Henry Appointed As Monaco Manager On Three-Year Deal

Thierry Henry has been named as the new head coach at Monaco. The former Arsenal and France forward replace Leonardo Jardim, who was sacked by the Ligue 1 side on Thursday.

Henry started his career at Monaco and has been working as an assistant to the Belgium manager Roberto Martínez.

Henry has signed a deal until June 2021 and said on Monaco’s website: “I am very happy to come back to Monaco and extremely determined to meet the challenges ahead.”

Jardim had led Monaco to the French title in 2017. However, last year’s Ligue 1 runners-up have struggled this season, sitting 18th and with only one win in all competitions.

Henry will make his first steps into management after a reported switch to Bordeaux over the summer never materialized. “In the first place, I thank AS Monaco for giving me the opportunity to coach the team of this club so special to me,” Henry said. “I cannot wait to meet the players to start working together.”

Henry is set to officially take up his new role from Monday. He will be joined at the club by Valado Tralhao, the Under-23s coach at Benfica, and Patrick Kwame Ampadu, who had been working at the Arsenal Academy.

Monaco’s vice president and chief executive officer, Vadim Vasilyev, is confident the 41-year-old World Cup winner can make an impact in the dugout.

“His knowledge of football, his passion for the game, his high standards and his commitment to our colours make his nomination a reality,” Vasilyev said. “Thierry is both aware of the task ahead and eager to start his new job. He can count on our trust and all our support to bring a new dynamic to the team and carry out its mission.”

Henry helped Monaco win the French title in 1997, before joining Italian club Juventus in January 1999. The then winger was reunited with former manager Arsène Wenger when he moved to Arsenal some seven months later, going on to become an integral part of the Invincibles side and eventually the club-record goalscorer.

Henry joined Barcelona in 2007, winning the Champions League two years later, before a switch to the United States with the New York Red Bulls as well as a brief spell back at Arsenal.

The Frenchman had been initially doing some coaching with Arsenal while also taking on a lucrative pundit role with Sky Sports, which finished at the end of last season.

Henry was more recently part of the backroom staff in Belgium’s run to the semi-finals of the World Cup, where they finished third ahead of England and had been heavily linked with the manager’s job at Aston Villa before Dean Smith’s appointment at the Championship club.

Published

Miss Tourism Ghana, arguably one of the most influential beauty pageants in Ghana that grooms young ladies to be abreast with the country’s heritage and tourism, on Wednesday, April 24, 2019, launched its 10th anniversary at the MJ Grand Hotel, East Legon.

According to the organizers, ten years of their journey wouldn’t have been successful without some great personalities in the tourism industry who when they knock on their doors, gladly open up to help the brand, Miss Tourism Ghana.

Speaking at the event, the Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Tourism Authority Mr. Akwesi Agyeman, commended the founder Mrs. Brew-Hammond for singlehandedly supporting the tourism industry with her initiative to groom young girls to be more abreast with their country and also take the country on the world stage. He promised that his office is ever ready to support the brand to go worldwide.

Mr. Agyeman also suggested that whiles they are campaigning on seeing, feeling, wearing and eating Ghana; patrons should also campaign about keeping Ghana clean to attract more tourist.

South African High Commissioner to Ghana, Lulu Xingwana, also added that tourism ambassadors should consider campaigning for a cleaner Ghana, she shared an experience on her visit to Nzulezu in the Western Region, and she said “Nzulezu is a beautiful place to visit but the sanitation problem there won’t allow more tourists to visit”
The event was attended by some great personalities in the tourism industry and was spearheaded by Mrs. Brew Hammond. She with some past contestants and queens shared some of the memories the brand has had since its birth and how it has impacted their lives.

As part of the 10th anniversary, Miss Tourism Ghana will give an opportunity to young ladies between the ages of 18- 24 to partake in this year’s competition. They will be on the nation’s tourism sector and upcoming initiatives.
Those that can best articulate and demonstrate specific regional values, including customary dances, will be chosen to face off to the grand finale where the eventual winner would be selected.

“The girls do not have to hail from a region to represent it,” Mrs. Brew-Hammond, Events and Operations Director of the pageant explained. “Whoever ultimately wins will showcase Ghana as a whole so we are looking for smart ladies who can sell Ghana effectively.”

The winner of the Miss Tourism Ghana crown will represent the nation at Miss Tourism World, and act as Ghana’s tourism and environmental youth Ambassador at official events in Ghana and internationally.
‘We are not looking for a beauty queen,” Mrs. Brew-Hammond stressed. “We are looking for the young lady who can be trained to best represent Ghana’s beauty.”
