Thierry Henry Once Gave A Monaco Star The Coldest Stare After Not Tucking His Chair In
Thierry Henry's attempts to rebuild Monaco during his ill-fated managerial spell at the club seemed to start with instilling discipline in the players -- and by doing it the hard way.
Henry, who was sacked only three months after his appointment, showed how much he valued discipline and simple manners when he had Benoit Badiashile with him during a press conference for their Champions League clash with Borussia Dortmund.
When the briefing was all done and dusted, the two were getting ready to leave and the Monaco star forgot to tuck in his chair.
And Henry had one of the coldest death stares for the 19-year-old defender after he walked away from the table with his chair being left out.
It is hardly surprising that the former Monaco boss waited for Badiashile to scurry back to the table, tuck his chair in and then walked off the stage.
Wow. If looks could kill, then Henry has perfected that as an art form. It's hard not to say that he has a demeanour that most secondary school teachers wish they could have when they're dealing with a bunch of teenagers.
