Monaco try to turn back time

The principal Monaco management has suspended Thierry Henry from work in the first team for undefined period. The second step of the Monegasques was the return to the team of the former head coach Leonardo Jardim.

Monaco have suspended Theirry Henry from managerial activity with the main team of the club and will soon say goodbye to the legend for good. The reason for such a decision was the results of the Monegasques under Henry’s management.

After his appointment the Red-and-Whites played in 20 matches, out of which they won four times, had a draw five times and conceded eleven times. The team is occupying the second-to-last place in Ligue 1, Being ahead of Guingamp by only one point. Monaco were also eliminated from the Champions League, the Cup of France, but advanced to the French League semi-final.

In the latest match against Strasbourg Henry even went berserk. At first, the former forward cursed the opponents player for stalling, having apologized afterwards. And then in an interview he criticized the work of referees and video assistant referee. And that would be okay, if only his team did not lose 1:5 and with such score blaming referees is the last thing he should do. The management couldn’t take it, when it became known that Thierry suspended three players from the main team, who, according to him, are not ready to fight for the club’s honor.

This situation made the Monegasques’ management with the Prince of Monaco in charge make swift decisions. The work with Henry was suspended and he was replaced by Franck Passi at the post, who became an interim manager. However, instead of looking for a new manager, capable of cleaning Augean Staples at Louis II, the management brought back Leonardo Jardim three months after the dismissal. This became known on Friday from BBC, journalist David Ornstein to be exact.

According to the words of the British media representative, Monaco have reached an agreement with the Portuguese manager and he will soon head the team. The differences with the start of the season, when the Monegasques also settled in the relegation zone lie in the management. It is possible that the Prince of Monaco, who accepted the club after wastefulness of president Rybolovlyev will give more freedom to the coach and strengthen work in the transfer market, focusing on the search and raising talents, and not only on their sale.
