Cesc Fabregas is convinced Thierry Henry will become a "top coach" despite Monaco sacking the former Arsenal striker.

Henry was appointed as Monaco head-coach back in October, his first managerial job, but was relieved off his duties just after three months at the helm of the Ligue 1 side. 

And, Fabregas, who left Chelsea to work with his former teammate, signing a three-and-a-half-year deal for an undisclosed fee on January 11, said as Sky Sports quoted: "We are sad for 'Titi' because I really think he will be a top coach, I am sure of it.

"Football doesn't wait and maybe it was not the right moment or he didn't have the time to fulfil all his plans and everything he wanted to do. That is life, it happens.

"I am not going to lie, one of the main reasons for me coming to Monaco is that Thierry called me," added the 31-year-old. "He wanted me to play every game, every minute."
