Thierry Henry after 20 games in charge.
Former Arsenal and France striker Thierry Henry has been suspended from his role as coach of Monaco with his team second bottom of Ligue 1, the Ligue 1 club announced on Thursday.

Monaco fomer coach Leonardo Jardim is expected to replace Henry, just over three months after being fired himself.

The 2017 French champions are in the relegation zone after only five wins under Henry in all competitions.

Franck Passi, appointed as Henry’s assistant on 20 December, would oversee training on Friday ahead of the weekend’s clash with fellow strugglers Dijon.

Henry has been suspended until a definitive decision is made,” the club said in a statement,

Thierry Henry – who was hired in October – had apologised for using foul language to insult Strasbourg defender Kenny Lala during his side’s 5-1 defeat on Saturday.

Arsenal’s all-time leading scorer is in his first managerial role, having previously been Belgium assistant boss.

He had been on the shortlist for the Aston Villa manager’s job in October before taking the job at the club where he started his playing career.
