Although Jonathan Woodgate has been named head coach at Bournemouth until the end of the season, Henry steps down effective immediately due to family reasons.

Speaking in a statement released today, the 43-year-old confirmed he would be returning to London having been unable to see his children due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Henry said in a statement: “It is with a heavy heart that I’ve decided to take this decision. The last year has been an extremely difficult one for me personally.

“Therefore, it is with much sadness that I must take the decision to return to London and leave CF Montreal. I would like to thank the fans, players and all the staff of this club that have made me feel so welcome.”
