Wanyama’s club coach resigns
Thierry Henry has resigned as coach of Montreal in Major League Soccer (MLS) after one season on Thursday, citing family reasons.
The 43-year-old former World Cup champion with France became Montreal’s coach in November 2019.
His team had eight wins, 13 losses, and two draws in the pandemic-shortened season, finishing in ninth place in the Eastern Conference.
Montreal lost to New England 2-1 in the postseason play-in round, its first playoff appearance since 2016.
Henry said he is returning to London to see his children.
But he has been linked with a move to English Championship side Bournemouth.
Henry, who’s previously also coached French side Monaco, signed Wanyama at Montreal in March.
And in a recent interview on Radull Live, Wanyama described Henry as a tough manager ‘who understands the game’ and improves his players’ personality.
