Cesc Fabregas is convinced head coach Thierry Henry will keep Monaco in Ligue 1 this season despite their form.

Fabregas, who left Chelsea last week to reunite with his former Arsenal team-mate Henry at Monaco, is now focused on his new challenge in France and is backing his new boss to steer the club clear of relegation.

The 31-year-old midfield ace said at his Monaco unveiling as Sky Sports quoted: "I like the way he thinks, one thing about Thierry - he is a new coach and is starting his career, but he is a winner, he is a competitor and that's one thing you will never be able to take away from him.

"That's why I know we are in safe hands in this case, because he will always want to compete, he will always want to win and that's always a reassurance for a player."

The Spaniard admitted it was tough leaving England after 13 years.

He added: "I'm not going to lie, it was a difficult moment for me. I spent 13 years in England and I had a lot of great moments.

"I started my career there, played for two great clubs, winning a lot of things, breaking records, making friends, meeting lots of great people and fans in both places.

"I felt sometimes I was more English than Spanish."
