Monaco sack Jardim 17 months after Ligue 1 title triumph

Thierry Henry is out of the running to replace Steve Bruce as Aston Villa manager say Sky sources

Since winning the French title in 2017, Monaco have raised nearly half a billion pounds by selling players such as Kylian Mbappe (Paris Saint-Germain), Bernardo Silva and Benjamin Mendy (Manchester City), Tiemoue Bakayoko (Chelsea), Thomas Lemar (Atletico Madrid), and Fabinho (Liverpool).

Monaco have sacked manager Leonardo Jardim, the club have announced, and Thierry Henry remains the frontrunner to replace him.

The Arsenal legend has been learning the tricks of the trade as an assistant to Belgium boss Roberto Martinez, but instead of leaping straight into the top job Monaco - remember Gary Neville at Valencia anyone - Henry would be wise to continue his development as an assistant, and who better to work under than his former Gunners gaffer Wenger.

Monaco have not won since the opening day of the season in any competition, and Sunday's loss at home to Rennes extended their consecutive defeats to four games.

Quite notably, Portuguese boss Jardim was responsible for the revival of Monaco, winning the title in 2017 - their first since 2000.

Jardim said: "I am grateful and proud to have trained AS Monaco for more than four years".


With one a more elder figure and one younger, they are a better balanced duo than Henry and Terry might have been together, and they have worked together before.

"His time here will remain one of the most handsome periods in the club's history. Leonardo will still be part of the AS Monaco family".

"For me, he's an extraordinary player, a legend of Arsenal", he told L'Equipe.

Thierry Henry has reportedly rejected Aston Villa.

According to Sky sources, the Villa hierarchy are no longer interested in hiring Henry after the sacking of Steve Bruce earlier in the season.

Jardim took over at Monaco in 2014 and counts the likes of Sporting CP, Olympiacos and Braga among his former clubs.
