Thierry Henry on VAR: “We talk, but nothing changes.”

Speaking in an interview with RTL, Impact Montréal boss Thierry Henry discussed a number of subjects, including his MLS side’s start to the season, VAR and racism.


Honestly, we talk and talk about it but it changes nothing. We have to adapt to the rules. We try to control what we can. I stay in my corner, goal or no goal.

On racism:

Everyone talks about it but in the end there is no real punishment. When something happens to the referee, we stop the match. Those who must speak do not act much. It’s not like I can impose the sanctions myself!

On his start to life at Impact Montréal:

I don’t see a difference between Arsenal’s U18s, being an assistant for Belgium or the #1 for Monaco. You learn everyday. Certain things change when you are #1 but your staff helps you. It is a normal evolution. We are not getting carried away. After three matches, the team is not playing badly, with what we have, we are fighting. Sometimes you have to take hits… We are trying to improve. I want an attacking team on the pitch. Full-backs very high with three attackers centrally. The team’s system depends as well on what the opposition is lining up with but we are trying to do our thing.
