Eden Hazard sends message to Thierry Henry after Monaco sack

Henry took over in October for his first senior managerial stint to try and halt their remarkable fall from the upper echelons of European football.

The Arsenal great took over his former club to great fanfare in October following the sacking of Leonardo Jardim but he has since suffered an exit from the Champions League and disappointing results in Ligue 1.

Monaco have suspended manager Thierry Henry, amid reports that the Frenchman has in effect already been sacked following a disastrous run of form which sees the club just one point off the bottom of the Ligue 1 table.

Henry's humiliation during the Strasbourg game was exacerbated when he was forced to apologise for calling a player's grandmother a "whore" at the Stade Louis II.

Monaco, who are struggling in Ligue 1, have suspended manager Thierry Henry.

They have not won in the league since the start of December when they beat Amiens 2-0 and the suspension comes two days after they were knocked out of the France Cup by FC Metz.

Prior to this news, Henry, revealed how many first-teamers players, "too many to name", had been demoted to the reserves as punishment.

Their previous game there resulted in a awful 5-1 league defeat to Strasbourg, meaning Monaco have not won at home since May last season. "We are in a critical situation, sadly, that has not changed".

"My future? [The] owners would decide when they need to decide" Henry said on Wednesday.

"We will create a small group to go on a mission".

And when you think about it, that basically means that he has to wait around to be told that he's been sacked.

Ornstein also remarked on Henry's replacement, claiming that the man he replaced at the club, Leonardo Jardim, could make a comeback.
