Carnell's Red Bulls steamroll Henry's side

Bradley Carnell's New York Red Bulls produced an incredible display to thrash Thierry Henry's Montreal Impact 4-1 on his return to his former club.

Henry secured legendary status in New York after scoring 52 goals in 135 games over four-and-a-half seasons but his return to the club as a manager did not prove to be a memorable one.

Up against Carnell, who's impressed in his stint as interim manager since the sacking of Chris Armas, the performance at the Red Bull Arena drew plenty of plaudits.

Former FC Barcelona teammate Bojan opened the scoring for Henry's Impact as early as the fourth minute but the relentless high-pressing of Red Bulls proved too much as they scored four unanswered goals.

Carnell has now won three from five games since his appointment but looks set move back to the assistant role with Gerhard Struber said to be close to joining from Barnsley.
