Strasbourg 2-1 Monaco: Thierry Henry loses first game as manager

Thierry Henry's first match as Monaco head coach ended in defeat

Appointed as manager of Monaco - the club at which he began his professional playing career - earlier in the month, he was unable to prevent them losing 2-1 away to Strasbourg on Saturday night.

Monaco were trying to cancel out an Adrien Thomasson header which goalkeeper Seydou Sy fumbled into his own net in the first half when winger Grandsir was shown a straight red for a risky challenge on Anthony Goncalves in the 66th minute.

He was quoted by Sky Sports after the match, saying: "It wasn't easy, we tried to put something in place which worked at the beginning, and then we conceded that goal that I don't need to describe. I want to keep positive despite the negatives..." We tried to reorganise the game, but unfortunately Sam was sent off. The game could have turned in our favour, but it didn't.

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.

Henry's second game is a trip to Club Brugge in the Champions League on Wednesday.

It got worse for the visitors when Samuel Grandsir saw red for a high foot, before Strasbourg substitute Lebo Mothiba made it two for the home side. In addition, we lost (Radamel) Falcao at the beginning.

Meanwhile, Paris Saint-Germain continued the blistering start to their Ligue 1 title defence with a record-extending 10th straight win as Kylian Mbappe scored in a 5-0 thrashing of Amiens.

Mothiba then sealed the win for the Strasbourg in the 84th minute with his sixth league goal.
