Ampadu has left his role with Arsenal's youth team to join Henry in Ligue 1, with Benfica's U23s coach Joao Carlos Calado Trahlo also joining the former Gunner.

Kwame - father of Chelsea player Ethan Ampadu - made two appearances for Arsenal between 1988-91 before going on to become a regular at both Swansea City and Exeter City.

The Republic of Ireland international joined Arsenal's youth set-up as a coach in 2012 before taking on the role as coach of the U18s, finishing as runners-up in the U18s Premier League in 2017.

Henry has signed a deal until June 2021 and said on Monaco's website: "I am very happy to come back to Monaco and extremely determined to meet the challenges ahead."
