Thierry Henry's first job in management hasn't gone to plan. 

The Arsenal legend was hired by Monaco back in October and took charge of 12 Ligue 1 games before being suspended by the club on Thursday. 

He won just two of those matches and will leave the team lingering in the relegation zone, one point above bottom-placed Guingamp. 

While Monaco have been performing poorly on the pitch, Henry has also been misbehaving on the sidelines.  

During his side's 5-1 defeat to Strasbourg at the weekend the Frenchman caused controversy by shouting abuse at Kenny Lala, who he believed was timewasting during the game. 

To make matters worse Monaco were then dumped out of the French Cup by League 2 side Metz on Tuesday. 

That embarrassing result looks to be the final straw and after just 104 days in the hotseat at the Stade Louis II, Henry is on his way out. 

WHERE IT ALL WENT WRONG 

Details surrounding his departure are starting to dominate the headlines and they don't paint the former striker in a very good light.

Reports from Goal France claim that he would often take snipes at his players and on one occasion was heard shouting "He, he is supposed to be worth €10m?" in front of the subs bench. 

Other sources suggest that Henry would make examples of his players and refuse to consider anyone else's opinion during his tenure.

With these reports coming to light, it's not clear if Henry will be returning to management anytime soon - or even if there's another club willing to take a chance on him now.

But there is a silver lining from this fallout at Monaco and it comes in the form of a huge payout.  

MILLIONS MADE 

According to the Mirror, Henry signed a three-year deal worth £2.8 million per year when he arrived at the club. 

Since being suspended he's been assured that he'll be receiving a full severance pay-off, which means he'll walk away with £8.4 million.

That's certainly not bad for 104 days of work. So, Henry's first management job may have been a disaster, but he's made an awful lot of money for his efforts.
