Thierry Henry has been appointed as the new head coach of MLS side Montreal Impact.

The 42-year-old, who spent four-and-a-half years with the New York Red Bulls before ending his career in 2014, has signed a two-year deal, with the option for an extra 12 months.

After agreeing to the move, Henry said: “It’s an honour to coach the Montreal Impact and return to MLS. It’s a league I know well, in which I had some very nice moments.

“To be in Quebec, in Montreal, which has an enormous multicultural heritage, it’s extraordinary. I’ve always kept an eye on the club and now I’m here.”

The former Arsenal star managed just five wins in all competitions in his three months in charge of French League I side Monaco, before he was sacked in January this year.

This is Henry’s only second stint as a club head coach.
