Player to Manager

October 20, 2018 -- Monaco travel to Strasbourg in Thierry Henry’s first game since being appointed manager of Monaco. Henry left his position as assistant coach with the Belgian national team to return to Ligue 1, France’s premier football competition.

Former Arsenal and Barcelona star Thierry Henry is launching his managerial career at AS Monaco, 24 years after making his professional debut as a player there. The Ligue 1 team sacked coach Leonardo Jardim earlier this month, and are languishing in the relegation zone after only one win in all competitions this season.

Since winning the Ligue 1 trophy in 2016-17, Monaco have sold the majority of their title-winning stars -- including teenage World Cup sensation Kylian Mbappe -- for an estimated €560m.

Henry faces a tough start at “Les Monégasques” with contests against struggling Dijon and Reims, as well as a crucial double header with Club Brugge to retain their Champions League status.


21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
