·1 min read

MONTREAL — Thierry Henry has resigned as coach of Montreal in Major League Soccer after one season on Thursday, citing family reasons.

The 43-year-old former World Cup champion with France became Montreal's coach in November 2019. His team had eight wins, 13 losses and two draws in the pandemic-shortened season, finishing in ninth place in the Eastern Conference.

Montreal lost to New England 2-1 in the post-season play-in round, its first playoff appearance since 2016.

Henry said he is returning to London to see his children. Henry starred for Arsenal from 1998-2007.
