What Thierry Henry Did Just Before Monaco Sacking Proves He'd Lost The Dressing Room

What Thierry Henry Did Just Before Monaco Sacking Proves He'd Lost The Dressing Room

To put it bluntly, Thierry Henry's managerial career has got off to a shambolic start.

Since taking the vacant post at former club Monaco in October, Henry has lost 11 of the 20 games he has been in charge for - scoring 15 goals and conceding a whopping 36.

His four wins give him a win percentage of just 20%, with Monaco in 19th place and in the middle of a relegation dogfight.

The low point of his reign so far came on Tuesday when the former Barcelona striker oversaw the principality side lose 3-1 in the French Cup against Ligue 2 Metz, who themselves played a weakened side at the Stade Louis II.

Following on from that humiliating defeat, Monaco have decided to suspend him from his managerial duties - and it's pretty much inevitable that he will no longer be in charge.

Prior to this news, Henry, revealed how many first-teamers players, "too many to name", had been demoted to the reserves as punishment.

"We are in a critical situation, sadly, that has not changed," Henry said in a press conference.

"We have cut the squad down to size. At one point or another, you need guys who want to save the club, not just think about their own futures. We have done some sorting. We are going to war."

According to the Mirror, the Arsenal legend is set to be given his marching orders in the next 48 hours and will be replaced by the man he replaced, Leonardo Jardim.

However, when asked about speculation surrounding his future, the 41-year old didn't have much to say.
