Following his disappointing spell at AS Monaco last season, Thierry Henry reveals he went four months without receiving another coaching offer.
Henry took over at his boyhood club in October last year, with the side sitting 18th in Ligue 1 following a poor start.
However, Henry's reign at the French outfit came to an end after three-and-a-half months after winning just four games, which left the club in the relegation zone.

"You win or you learn, and, as you can imagine, I learned a lot," Henry told the Telegraph. 
"I still have Monaco in my heart, it’s the club that gave me my first opportunity as a player and gave me my first opportunity as a coach, so I will always be thankful to the people who gave me that, people who are there, some are gone.
“My heart talked at the time. I wanted to go back to where I started everything. I have zero regrets about what happened.
“My phone didn’t ring for four months after I left Monaco and then all of a sudden I got five calls. Some were not what I was looking for and some were as a number two.
"Very interesting offers, but I can’t leave my staff behind. I’ve got guys who stopped working for me and what do I say to them? ‘Hey guys, you stopped working for me but now I’ve got a job’.
"I won’t do a number two job because I want to be a number one.”
