He dreamed of something else to attract his tracksuit. Unavoidable. Even in his worst nightmares he could not expect such a complicated beginning. Because Thierry Henry is just living a nightmare for now. On Tuesday, he saw Monaco sink against Bruges (0-4). The ASM has registered the worst defeat in its history at home in C1. Nothing else. And without insulting the Belgian club, it was not a cador of the old continent across the street, which says a lot about the current state of this ASM. "It is certainly a shame. Even though we had good opportunities …", recognized Djibril Sidibé at RMC.
Henry could hardly start worse for a first experience on a bank. Five matches. No victory. And three setbacks. That Tuesday is more violent. "Every time we say it can not be worse, and every time it is worseHenry gave in at the end of the game, but the former Arsenal striker gave in to the positive attitude, not surprisingly, it is not the time to break into. They do not have to. It's already in the hole. "The group has been mentally touched", he admits.
" If you do not punish in Europe, we will punish you"
During his time for pick-up, Henry wanted to emphasize the few positive points he saw on Tuesday night. "The score does not reflect the face of the match. The start of the race was good"he believes."Tactically, they were asked for an access problem. The action of Sofiane Diop is an action created on the ground, between the lines. ""Young people brought envy and fighting spirit"He also added, and he also emphasized the fact that his team had chances, in contrast to the game against Reims."But that is when you do not punish in Europe, we punish youHenry chained, and that was a real punishment.
If Henry is looking for positive points, however, the report is without appeal. AS Monaco has a desperate face. The Monegasque team lacks impact in the duels, leaves too much space and plays too high. The assumed frames, Falcao, Glik, Jemerson, Sidibe, Chadli or Tielemans, are for the absent subscribers. And in terms of attitude, the players of the Principality are not there. "What worries me is when we take a goal, we miss a pass, we stop playing", annoys Hendrik, who also stigmatizes"school mistakes"of his players in defense.
" We know where to focus"
Private of more than 10 elements, Monaco has of course apologies to continue. Especially since Henry had already inherited a team in a sad state. Even Leonardo Jardim could not do it again after the summer facelift. Which means. But we really do not see where this training is going. With this setback in front of Bruges, she can at least clean up her hope of saving C1 furniture. "It was not a plan, but now we know where to concentrate", Henry slipped, warning that:"As long as you do not reassure yourself, it will be difficult. We have to help the players, even if they also have to come back to a higher level. "
Given the state of his education, Thierry Henry does not have multiple solutions anyway. "We lose players every game"He regrets that Kamil Glik is injured, and the strings try to get his group out of the rut, are not legions."We are looking for players who bring us something and have the desire. And if young people can bring something … they will playHenry, who ended the meeting with many young people, including Diop, Gouano and Massengo. The concern is that Monaco does not have much time, because Sunday is the PSG that presents itself …
