Golovin reveals Henry’s struggles at Monaco

The French legendary footballer struggled as Monaco coach, and today Aleksandr Golovin has explained why.

“I didn’t know that much [about Leicester] before their championship win in 2016. Before that, I didn’t know too much about the Club. I knew recently there was some dramatic events, but I know the Club is really good inside.”

“It’s a big family. Everybody is really kind and really good with me. I think it will be really good here.”

“There is a lot of excitement here in this stadium. When I watched the games back in 2016, before the win of the championship, I was really impressed about the atmosphere.”

“I’m really excited to know this atmosphere on Sunday.”
