Thierry Henry’s young managerial career looks set to experience its first major setback following reports in the UK media that his club Monaco is ready to part ways with him.
The French and Arsenal legend landed his first managerial job with Monaco, following several years of under-studying Roberto Martinez as his assistant with the Belgian national team.
However, with Monaco lying just one place and one point above the relegation zone, and with more than half of the French league season gone, the Municipality club is ready to sack Henry without delay, that is according to The Mirror.
The report states that former boss Leonardo Jardim, who Henry replaced amid so much fanfare in October 2018, ironically, is the one being lined up to reclaim his position from the Arsenal legend and Monaco academy graduate.
Given Henry’s roots at Monaco, this cannot be a decision that the club is taking lightly; however, with just two wins out of a possible 12, and without any in front of the home fans, Monaco will deliver the difficult news to him within the next 48 hours, claims The Mirror.
This will, without doubt, be a very humbling experience for the former Sky Sports pundit, who always talked a good talk while on TV, even criticizing the likes of his mentor Arsene Wenger in way many considered harsh.
Like Gary Neville, another football legend and Sky Football pundit, who also had a disastrous managerial debut with Valencia, Henry should be ready for a lot of ridicule, both on social-media and TV,
