Monaco sack Thierry Henry after three months in charge

Former French footballer Thierry Henry has been sacked as the manager of Monaco.

It was his first managerial role and he was in charge of the club for just three months, covering 20 matches.

But things hadn’t been going well.

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, will take training on Friday, the club said.

Passi has previously had spells as caretaker manager of Marseille and Lille.

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 was previously the assistant manager for Belgium.
