Henry and Ampadu met when the former worked as Arsenal's U-18 boss with the later being the U-14 boss. Ampadu had a duo of appearances for Arsenal as a player between 1988 and 1991 amidst  loan spells with Plymouth and West Bromwich. 

He later became a regular at Exeter City and Swansea City. 

Kwame led Arsenal's U-18's to the final of the 2017 FA Youth Cup. Interestingly enough, he lost the tie to Chelsea where his son Ethan Ampadu plies his trade. 

Patrick Ampadu whose  father is a Ghanaian  represented his mother's country, Ireland at u- 21 level. As a coach, he saw to the development of players like Emile Smith Rowe, Reiss Nelson and Joe Willock. 

Thierry Henry, a former player of Monaco and his staff are tasked to rescue the club after a rather poor start to the season. 1 win in 12 outings this season has led to the sack of Leonardo Jardim who guided the club to their 2017 league heroics. 

Can Eric Eyiah, captain of Ghana's 2017 U-17 side grow up under the new technical staff?
