Monaco have suspended their manager, Thierry Henry, as the board decides whether to keep the Frenchman after just three months in charge.

After announcing his suspension on Thursday, the Ligue 1 club are understood to be following procedure and the Frenchman is now thought to have left the club.

The French champions of 2017 currently find themselves in the relegation zone, just three points from safety. After winning no games in their last five league matches, the former Arsenal footballer received heavy scrutiny in previous weeks for dropping multiple first team players to the reserves given their recent form, consequently losing him his job.

Henry’s assistant, Frank Passi, is predicted to take the team for their next league encounter against Dijon FCO tomorrow night and is understood to be overlooking training today.


Passi has previously undertook caretaker positions at Marseille and Lille.

Former Monaco manger, Leonardo Jardim, is favourite to make a shock return to the club for the rest of the season after he was dismissed just three months ago. The Portuguese manager remained in Monaco after losing his job at the football club and is still known to have a relationship with some of the players.

Following Monaco’s 5-1 defeat to league rivals Strasbourg, Henry was forced to apologise for comments he made towards defender Kenny Lala after he shouted abuse and foul language from the sidelines.

This was Henry’s first managerial position after turning down Aston Villa at the start of the season for a return to the club where he started his footballing career.
