Monaco sack Leonardo Jardim Thierry Henry frontrunner as replacement


Belgium superstar Eden Hazard has shared his opinion on his global coach Thierry Henry's potential foray into club management with AS Monaco ahead of their Nations League clash against Switzerland tonight.

And Jardim has paid the price for Monaco's poor start to the season, which has seen them take just six points from nine league matches, while Champions League defeats to Atletico Madrid and Borussia Dortmund leave them bottom of Group A.

Jardim said: "I am grateful and proud to have trained AS Monaco for more than four years".

"I've always given my very best and worked with passion".

Monaco Vice President and Chief Executive Officer Vadim Vasilyev acknowledged Jardim's time at the French club as historic.

He left his lucrative job as a pundit on Sky Sports at the end of last season amid plans to become a manager after earning his stripes at former club Arsenal and, more recently, with Belgium as assistant to Martinez.

Henry, 41, the record goalscorer of the France national team is now the front-runner for the Monaco job, the club he started his professional career with.

"His time here will remain one of the most lovely periods in the club's history".

Quite notably, Portuguese boss Jardim was responsible for the revival of Monaco, winning the title in 2017 - their first since 2000.

Henry, Arsenal's record goalscorer who also represented Barcelona, Juventus and New York Red Bulls, was previously linked with the now-taken Aston Villa post but is heavily fancied to take his first head coach role with Monaco.

Henry started his playing career at Monaco in 1994 and he was part of the side that won the French title in 1997 under Jean Tigana.

According to Sky sources, the Villa hierarchy are no longer interested in hiring Henry after the sacking of Steve Bruce earlier in the season.

"Monaco have ended their collaboration with Leonardo Jardim", the club said in a statement.
