Thierry Henry left the comfort of the Sky Sports studio for the dog-eat-dog would of football management in October.

The Frenchman put pen to paper on a three-year deal and was assigned the task of lifting Monaco up the Ligue 1 table.

He took over with the club languishing 18th in the Ligue 1 table, having secured just win from their opening nine matches.

Henry replaced Leonardo Jardim, who had been in charge of Monaco since 2014.

However, the Premier League legend could soon find himself back in the Sky Sports studio - much like his former colleague Gary Neville after his ill-fated spell at Valencia - following developments on Wednesday evening.

In a rather unexpected statement, Monaco confirmed that Henry had been suspended from coaching duties while his future is resolved.


“AS Monaco announces that it has decided to suspend its duties as coach of the first team Thierry Henry from this day and waiting for a final decision,” Monaco announced in a statement.

“Franck Passi will train the professional group this Friday.”

It’s expected that Henry will be sacked and re-replaced by Jardim.

Here's Henry's record at Monaco...

Monaco currently sit 19th in the Ligue 1 table and were thrashed 5-1 by Strasbourg at home in the league last weekend.

They were then beaten 3-1 at home by Metz in the French Cup on Tuesday night.


Henry, who left his post as Belgium's assistant manager and his position as a pundit at Sky Sports, has always dreamt of becoming the boss of his former club Arsenal.

However, that dream might now be in tatters following this failure.
