Will Thierry Henry be successful in Monaco?

AS Monaco: coach Thierry Henry suspended - is Jardim coming?

On October 15th, Thierry Henry took his first head coach job, of all places at his youth club. An emotional matter. The mission of the French world and European champions: to save AS Monaco, which was threatened with relegation at the time as third from bottom.

101 days later, the 41-year-old was suspended from the Monaco club.

The club officially announced this on Thursday. It is said that the future of the coach has not yet been finally decided. However, there cannot and will not be a way back to the coaching bench after this process.

With Henry they hoped for a new start, a change for the better. But it didn't get better, in the end it actually got worse. In the league there was a 5-1 home clap against Strasbourg. After the bankruptcy against Metz, the club bosses had enough. Co-trainer Franck Passi will initially lead the training, the club announced.
