  • Monaco sack Leonardo Jardim Thierry Henry frontrunner as replacement

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry is set to be named Monaco's new manager after the French Ligue 1 outfit officially announced the sacking of Leonardo Jardim after four years with the club.

The club now sit in the relegation zone in 18th place, with just six points out of its first nine games.

Henry began his professional career at Monaco, before moving to Juventus, Arsenal and Barcelona, where he played between 2007 and 2010.

According to the Sun, former Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp believes the Championship side are set to make John Terry their new substantial manager as against the assistant role they initially wanted to give him.

Portuguese boss Jardim was appointed in 2014 and led the club to the French title in 2017, their first since 2000.

The home loss to Rennes last weekend was the final straw after a ten-game winless and four-game losing streak at the start of this season that signaled the end of Jardim's tenure. "I have always given my best and worked with passion. We have won great victories together and I will always keep those memories in me", Jardim told the club's official website.


French and British media have reported that former France global Thierry Henry is the favourite the replace him.

"I want to express my profound respect for all the work Leonardo has done", Vasilyev said.

"His passage will remain as one of the most handsome pages in the history of the club".

It is thought the 41-year-old was offered the vacant Aston Villa job on Wednesday, but turned it down after being approached by former club Monaco.

Thierry Henry is hoping to poach Arsenal coach Kwame Ampadu from Arsenal as part of his Monaco backroom staff.
