Since the Arsenal legend Thierry Henry gave up his job at Sky and announced that he wanted to concentrate on a full time management job, he has been linked with many possible destinations. The international side from Qatar was the first possibility (other than as Wenger’s replacement of course), and then there was the chance of taking over at Aston Villa which looked like a live possibility, but now it looks like he has landed the plum job at Monaco who were French Champions just a couple of years ago.

So it looks like he has landed one of the best jobs in France after PSG, but should he have taken a smaller job as his first job? Villa seemed like a good option at the time. An ex-Big Club fallen on lean times, a Championship club needing bringing up to the Premier League. That would have been a real challenge of his management skills.
Taking over cash-rich Monaco as a first job suggests to me that he will be paid a lot of money but he is potentially jumping on a banana skin…
Do you think he has made the right decision for his management career? Or is he just chasing the money?
