Monaco sacks Henry

Monaco has sacked Thierry Henry after only three months in charge.

There had been reports yesterday of Henry’s imminent sacking by the 2017 French champions. The BBC’s David ornstein is, however, now reporting that he has actually been sacked.

With just five wins in all competitions since taking over from Leonardo Jardim, Henry’s sacking had become a matter of when and not if.

Ironically, it is Jardim who is now being tipped as Monaco’s first choice to reclaim the job he lost to the World Cup winner in October.

Franck Passi, Henry’s assistant and former caretaker manager of Marseille and Lille, will take training on Friday, pending the announcement of a new permanent coach.
