Former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry has been fired as the manager of Monaco football club. Although the club says they will make a decision about his future.

There had been speculations that the French giants are on the verge of replacing the manager with predecessor Leonardo Jardim.

Recall that the club escaped relegation in 2017 having managed just 5 wins in 20 games under Theirry who was hired in October that year.

Henry’s assistant Franck Passi will take charge of the team the club said in a statement.

Pass was a former manager of Ligue 1 sides Marseille and Lille.

However, Henry 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 is in his first managerial role, having previously been Belgium assistant boss. He had been on the shortlist for the Aston Villa’s manager’s job in October before taking the job at his first professional club.
