Thierry Henry loses first game in charge of Monaco

Thierry Henry has lost his first game in charge of AS Monaco.

Henry's managerial career got off to a losing start as Monaco were beaten 2-1 by Strasbourg.

Monaco went into Saturday's clash in the drop zone while Strasbourg have been impressive so far this season.

The defeat drops Arsenal icon Henry's men to second from bottom of the Ligue 1 table with just one win from their first 10 games of the season.

As a player Henry spent five years at Monaco, winning the league in 1997, and though the 41-year-old took an assistant coaching role with the Belgian national team in 2016, Saturday's outing marked his first as a head coach.

Monaco are back in action against Club Brugge in the Champions League before taking on Dijon next week, in what will be Henry's first home match.
