The Montreal Impact appointed Thierry Henry as their new manager on a two-year deal.

"It's an honour to coach the Montreal Impact and return to MLS. It's a league I know well, in which I had some very nice moments. To be in Quebec, in Montreal, which has an enormous multicultural heritage, it's extraordinary. I've always kept an eye on the club and now I'm here," said Henry.

Henry managed Monaco for 20 matches last season, winning just four games.
