The France and Arsenal legend has been relieved of his managerial duties mere months after being put in charge.
Thierry Henry’s first foray into management has ended before it ever really got going, getting the sack from AS Monaco just three months after taking on the job.
The club have said in a statement that they have “suspended” Henry, but that is apparently just a formality according to BBC Sport.
In a shock twist, the very man he replaced – Leonardo Jardim – looks odds on to return to the post and take over managing the squad once again.
The former Arsenal striker won just five games in all competitions while in charge, with Monaco remaining in the relegation zone of Ligue 1 at the time of his sacking.
Henry’s assistant Franck Passi will now take over as caretaker manager until a replacement is found.
