New Monaco manager, Thierry Henry, has praised Radamel Falcao, hailing the forward as his team’s “charismatic leader”.
Henry has now come in to replace Leonardo Jardim at the helm as the club looks to turn its season around.
Falcao, who has scored 54 goals for Monaco across the past two campaigns, will be key to any turnaround for the Ligue 1 side this season and his new manager was full of praise for the 32-year-old.
“[Falcao] is our goalscorer, our charismatic leader. Everyone knows what he represents for this team.
“I am happy that he is back, not only him but all the players, as we try to get a good result at Strasbourg.
“We know it won’t be easy. Last game we know that they couldn’t hold on for victory. Maybe a good game to watch, but let’s work and see what we can do there.
“It was short, [Friday] is already one day before the game. So we need to work and video is our best friend these days,” Henry told a press conference on Thursday.
