AS Monaco midfielder Aleksandr Golovin has indicated that Thierry Henry was nervous during his managerial stint at the club and would raise his voice when things were not going perfectly in training. The Frenchman was appointed as the club’s manager shortly after Leonardo Jardim’s sacking in October, but he would only last for three months before the latter was reappointed at the helm.
In an interview covered by FourFourTwo, Golovin suggested that the former Arsenal man failed to kill the player role within him and this did not suit the managerial style with the players, he said: “Maybe Henry didn’t kill the role of the player inside of him. When things weren’t working out during practice he would get nervous and yell a lot. Maybe it was unnecessary. He was a very strong player and the only players near his level at Monaco are maybe [Radamel] Falcao and [Cesc] Fabregas. He would try to go out onto the field and show us how to practice and yell.”
