AS Monaco manager Thierry Henry expects another difficult time at Caen this Saturday in Ligue 1

Since replacing the fired Leonardo Jardim in the Monaco dugout last month, Henry has failed to win any of his first six matches in charge.

Currently, Monaco are languishing near the bottom of the Ligue 1 table in 18th-place with up to 12 players sidelined with injuries.

However, with the 10-day international break now over, Henry has welcomed back Sylla, Geubbels and Golovin to training this week.

Meanwhile, the Arsenal legend will be able to count on the services of the returning Yuri Tielemans – who has served his suspension.

“We had fewer players in recent days because of the international break but we did what we had to do with the players present,” Henry told reporters on the club website.

“This match in Caen will not be easy, it is a team that is also going through a difficult moment with players out, we will try to get the three points.

“We are in a delicate situation, everyone is aware. It is not because they are wounded that we must find excuses.

“I assume all responsibilities. We try to move forward, it is the most important thing.”
