Thierry Henry To Make Coaching Return, Just Two Months After Being Sacked

Thierry Henry To Make Coaching Return, Just Two Months After Being Sacked

After spending only 140 days in management at Ligue 1 side Monaco, Thierry Henry is set to be handed a shock return to his old job.

The Arsenal invincible looks like he will be offered a spot on Belgium's backroom team ahead of their route for international success.

Before being appointed as manager back in his homeland, Henry was number two to Roberto Martinez at Belgium.

However, after a poor managerial stint, Henry has an important decision to make on his future.

He will need to choose if his future lies in management, punditry or as a coach after being sacked very early into his contract.

Current Monaco manager Leonardo Jardim has managed to stabilise the club, after they were drawn into a relegation battle.

Monaco vice-president originally fired the popular Jardim, but after reappointing him, Vadim Vasilyev admitted the club got it wrong:

"Our club is going through a very challenging period. I am ready to admit that I personally bear the responsibility for this." he said via The Mirror.

"We have to acknowledge that during the summer transfer window, we sold too many key players, and despite considerable investments, mistakes were made with respect to their replacement.

"This did not allow us to create a new, competitive team. The decision to dismiss Leonardo Jardim was also premature.

"Leonardo Jardim's time at AS Monaco, as I said when he departed, would be remembered as one of the brightest chapters in the club's history.

"Today we realise that the story of Leonardo Jardim did not end as it was meant to. Leonardo should have been given the opportunity to continue his job.

"Thierry Henry is a football legend, but due to a very unfavourable mix of circumstances, including, above all, numerous injuries to our players, hampered him from quickly and effectively leading the team out of the crisis.

"I want to express my gratitude to Thierry Henry for accepting this challenge and trying to lead the team of his forer club during such a difficult period."
