Monaco coach Thierry Henry suspended - club

Monaco sack Thierry Henry as manager after recording strings of poor results since arriving three months ago.

Monaco say they have yet to make a final decision on Henry amid claims they are set to cut their losses by sacking the France World Cup victor - just 15 weeks into his appointment.

In the absence of regular captain Radamel Falcao, the usual routine was to hand the armband to experienced defender Kamil Glik, whose snub was seen as part of the boss' favouritism towards young midfielder Tielemans.

Henry was only appointed in October 2018 after the departure of his predecessor, Leonardo Jardim - who now looks set to make a shock return to the club.

In a statement, they wrote: "AS Monaco announces that it has chose to suspend its duties as coach of the first team Thierry Henry from this day and waiting for a final decision. We're going to war", he said. At some point, you need guys who want to save the club, who don't think about themselves.

"Franck Passi will train the professional group this Friday".

Henry's bad run has resulted in his position as Monaco boss appearing untenable, according to the Mirror.

'My future is not a problem, ' the former France forward said.

Monaco are three points adrift of safety in the Ligue 1 relegation zone.

Nothing screams dysfunction like re-hiring a manger you only sacked earlier that season, but that has not deterred the club from making such an abrupt u-turn.

The former Gunner was caught saying that Strasbourg player Kevin Lala had "a whore of a grandmother" and despite initial denial, Henry eventually apologised.

Henry's Monaco side were beaten 5-1 by Strasbourg at Stade Louis II last weekend and 3-1 in the principality by second-tier Metz in the Coupe de France midweek.
