Former Arsenal midfielder Robert Pires has thrown his weight behind former Gunners teammate Thierry Henry as he makes his managerial bow at French Ligue 1 outfit AS Monaco.

Pires spoke about Henry and his new job as Monaco manager in an interview monitored on renowned English news outlet Daily Mail.

According to him, Thierry Henry will be successful buoyed by the influences of both Roberto Martinez and Pep Guardiola.

Henry is an assistant manager in the Belgian national team setup under manager Roberto Martinez.

He was part of the Belgium contingent that finished in third place at this summer’s FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia.

Thierry Henry played under Pep Guardiola at Barcelona whom he joined from North London giants Arsenal in 2007.

Robert Pires believes that the things his former teammate has learnt under the aforementioned managers will make him hugely successful at Monaco.

He was named the new Monaco manager on Saturday after penning a three-year deal until 2021.

Henry returns to the principality club in a managerial capacity having played there in the 90s.

He spent two years with the youth team from 1992 to 1994.

The former Juventus and New York Red Bulls attacker made his debut for the first team in 1994.
