Thierry Henry gives Monaco player killer stare for not tucking chair in
Thierry Henry has hardly enjoyed a dream return to Monaco having kicked off his managerial career at his former club with just two wins from his first 10 games.
Henry's side may be mired in the Ligue 1 relgation zone, but at least the ex-Arsenal striker is attempting to instil a bit of fatherly discipline amongst his young squad, if footage caught by Canal+ at the end of a news conference ahead of Tuesday's Champions League clash against Borussia Dortmund is anything to go by.
After the media obligations were over, Henry made a very deliberate point of waiting for defender Benoit Badiashile tuck his chair away after concluding his media duties.
Wow - Thierry Henry the disciplinarian. If looks could kill as Benoît Badiashile fails tuck his chair in at the end of the press conference. pic.twitter.com/1HMJDno1Kq— Get French Football News (@GFFN) 10 December 2018
Badiashile, 17, caught one glimpse of Henry's stern stare and immediately switched into obedient schoolboy mod, tidying away his chair as though it was the end of assembly.
Now if only Henry can get his players to adhere to his instructions as faithfully on the pitch, they may have a fighting chance of avoiding relegation.
