Thierry Henry was unveiled as the new manager of Monaco after a poor run of results from the French side, but he was still unable to inspire his side to a victory.

The former Arsenal star had been linked to head coaching jobs and Egypt and West Ham, but eventually, he returned to his former club to take on his first full managerial post. Previously, he has been working alongside Roberto Martinez and oversaw Belgium's World Cup journey.

Monaco won the 2016-2017 Ligue 1 title, stunning the favourites Paris Saint-Germain. The club produced stars such as Kylian Mbappe, Thomas Lemar, and Benjamin Mendy. But they have since left the club after the wonderful season, and Monaco is witnessing a significant dip in form.

Last night, Les Monégasques lost to Strasbourg, and now sit in 19th place of the table. The Champions League team remain winless in their group after losing to Atletico Madrid and Borussia Dortmund. The last time the club had won was back in August against Nantes, when they played away from home on the opening matchday.

The players seem to be suffering from a lack of confidence in themselves, but fans from all around the world remain in support of Henry.

Henry has mentioned Pep Guardiola's and Arsene Wenger's influence on the way he views football during a press conference. Indeed, both have played a huge role in shaping Henry's reputation as a lethal and powerful goalscorer. Now, it is his time to step up and help his former club. Leaving the relegation zone ought to be Henry's topmost priority and he can improve his squad in the coming winter transfer season. Here was how Twitter reacted to his first loss.
