Monaco will again turn to Leonardo
Jardim as their new first-team coach following the suspension of Thierry
Henry, according to reports in France.
The Ligue 1 club suspended Henry with
immediate effect on Thursday pending a
final decision on his future following a
wretched run of form.
The former France, Arsenal and
Barcelona striker took over from the
sacked Jardim on October 13, signing a
deal until June 2021 after leaving his
post as Belgium assistant, but has had a
dismal start to his reign.
Under the 41-year-old, who started his
professional career at the principality
club, Monaco won just two of 12 league
games and were beaten 5-1 at home by
Strasbourg on Saturday.
French newspaper L’Equipe reported
that Jardim met with club executives
over a meal on Thursday evening to
iron out his new deal, which they
reported is a two-and-a-half-year contract.
Jardim was only sacked by Monaco
three and a half months ago.
