Former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry has revealed that Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is his reference as he takes on his first managerial job at French Ligue 1 side AS Monaco.
Henry, 41, eulogised Guardiola during his unveiling as the new Monaco boss earlier on Wednesday.
The Arsenal legend was confirmed as the new Monaco manager at the weekend.
He replaces Leonardo Jardim as the new Monaco boss after the Portuguese tactician was sacked last week.
Jardim won a first league title for the principality club in 17 years during the 2016/17 season but Monaco have been on the downward slide under his watch since their league triumph.
Monaco won just once in 11 games in all competitions under his guidance in this campaign and that earned him the sack.
The Champions League campaigners are currently in the relegation zone (18th spot) on the French Ligue 1 table following the run of just one win in nine league matches since the start of the season.
Thierry Henry is making a return to Monaco in a managerial capacity having played for the club during the 90s.
He spent two years in the Monaco Academy between 1992 and 1994 before making his debut for the first team under Arsene Wenger in 1994.
