Thierry Henry is still searching for his first win as Monaco coach after the Ligue 1 side only managed a 2-2 with Dijon on Saturday.

Thierry Henry, who took over from the sacked Leonardo Jardim earlier this month, needed a header from centre-back Kamil Glik in the 78th minute to rescue a point. This prevented Monaco collapsing to a fifth straight league loss.

Germany international Benjamin Henrichs opened the scoring for Monaco after half and hour. However, the 2017 French Champions fell behind after Dijon responded with goals from Mickael Alphonse and Mehdi Abeid.

Luckily for Henry, the Polish international Glik, was able to prevent defeat.

Monaco are now winless in their last 13 games in all competitions. They’re above bottom club Guingamp on goal difference.

Thierry Henry had this to day: “It’s good that we came back for the draw, but it’s not a win. I’m trying to stay positive. I have to stay positive when things are tough.”

The former Arsenal striker will need to start getting points on the board sooner rather than later otherwise he could face the same consequences as Leonardo Jardim.
