Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola has spoken up on the decision by Monaco to appoint Thierry Henry as their new manager.

Giardiola worked with the former Arsenal and France striker while with Barcelona, and has now wished him ‘all the best’ in his managerial career, adding that the 41-year-old deserved it.

“Of course I wish him all the best,’ Metro UK quoted Guardiola as saying at a press conference on Friday.
