Thierry Henry glares at Loic Badiashile as Monaco youngster forgets to tuck in his chair at the end of Champions League press conference

  • Thierry Henry held a press conference alongside Loic Badiashile on Monday
  • Young goalkeeper faced questions from the media before pair stood up to leave
  • Badiashile forgot to tuck his chair in, and received a death stare from his boss
  • Henry continued his glare until the 20-year-old returned to correct his mistake 

In his days as a Sky Sports pundit, Thierry Henry had a reputation as the joker – but that persona seems long gone following his step into the world of management.

Just ask Loic Badiashile, the 20-year-old goalkeeper who felt the full force of an Henry glare following the pair’s Champions League press conference on Monday.

With the press conference having just finished, the pair stood up to leave the room, but Badiashile forgot to tuck his chair in before going to walk out.

An easy mistake to make, you might think, but Henry appeared furious and glared at the young player until he returned to correct his error.

The Frenchman then stood over Badiashile while he tucked the chair in, continuing his glare while the media and television cameras watched on.

Henry was speaking ahead of his side’s Champions League clash against Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday, a game that means nothing to their season.

Perhaps the manager’s spikiness with his young player was due to the fact that Monaco are bottom of the group with a single point from five matches, meaning they have no way of qualifying for the knockout stages.

Since the Arsenal legend’s arrival at the club, the team have overturned a terrible start to give themselves a shot at escaping the relegation zone in the coming weeks.

Henry endured four defeats and two draws in his first six games in charge, but the team have since picked up two wins in their last three league games, including last time out away at relegation rivals Amiens.

The team will likely be keen to get Dortmund out of the way, so they can turn their attention solely on Ligue 1 and a game against Lyon at the weekend.

The trip north represents a tough test, with their opponents vying for a top four spot in the French top division.
