Monaco 'set to sack Thierry Henry and replace him with former boss Leonardo Jardim'

The Mirror claims Arsenal’s legendary striker is facing the chop after a terrible time at his former club.

And in an incredible twist, Leonardo Jardim is set to return to Monaco after being axed for Henry in October.

It’s said the ex-Belgium coach will be informed of his fate in the next 48 hours after Monaco were dumped out of the French Cup by second-tier Metz on Tuesday.

Henry has won just two league matches out of 12, with the latest result being a 5-1 defeat at home to Strasbourg.

Monaco are 19th in Ligue 1, just one point off bottom and three from safety.

Jardim led the side to a famous title victory in 2017, and Monaco chiefs will plead with the Portuguese tactician to return home and guide them to safety.

It’s said that Henry’s recent clash with Strasbourg’s Kenny Lala was the straw that broke the camel’s back.

Camera footage captured Henry telling the player he had a “w***e of a grandmother.”

And Henry was then forced into a grovelling apology despite initially claiming he was just using “language of the street.”
