Thierry Henry says he is trying to stay positive despite losing his first game in charge of Monaco on Saturday.
Henry left his position as Belgium assistant to take charge of struggling Monaco and there was huge hype surrounding his appointment, with the former striker starting his playing career at the Stade Louis II.
But things didn’t go to play in the clash at Strasbourg as the hosts took an early lead through Adrien Thomasson before Samuel Grandsir was then sent off for the visitors just two minutes after coming on as a substitute.
Lebo Mothiba made it 2-0 shortly after the dismissal before Youri Tielemans pulled back a late consolation from the penalty spot, but Le Racing were able to see out the 2-1 victory.
Despite the defeat, Henry remains positive and he is hopeful of turning things around.
“It wasn’t easy, we tried to put something in place which worked at the beginning, and then we conceded that goal that I don’t need to describe… Human error, I don’t want to wipe the floor with anyone,” he said.
“Then we tried to change the game, and unfortunately Sam (Grandsir) is sent off. After that, it was even harder, but we still tried to keep playing … I want to keep positive despite the negatives…”
