Hazard backs Henry to ‘become a great coach’ despite Monaco sacking

Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard has backed Thierry Henry to ‘become a great coach’ despite effectively being sacked by Monaco last night.

Hazard worked with Arsenal legend Henry during his time with the Belgium national team, where he was assistant coach to Roberto Martinez.

The Chelsea playmaker has backed Henry to recover from his first foray into club management and become a success in the future – even suggesting that he would be welcome to link up with him at international level again.

“I have no doubts that he will become a great coach in the future,” Hazard told reporters after Chelsea Carabao Cup win over Spurs last night.

“He’s welcome at the Belgium national team. If he wants to return, he knows where to find us.”

Henry was appointed as manager of his former club, Monaco, back in October, but the 2017 French Champions have endured a miserable campaign, with Henry unable to turn around their fortunes.

The former Barcelona forward had managed just four wins in all competitions and was suspended last night, leaving the club 19th in the Ligue 1 table and three points adrift from safety.
