Arsenal hero Thierry Henry facing Monaco sack

Thierry Henry is set to be fired by Monaco.

The Arsenal legend is expected to lose his job in the Principality, following a wretched start to his managerial career.

Henry will be told in the next 48 hours that he is surplus to requirements with former boss Leonardo Jardim in line for a shock return.

Jardim was axed in October to make way for the former Gunners’ striker, but now it appears the club’s owners are about to make an abrupt U-turn – and take him back to avoid the embarrassment of a drop into the second tier.

Monaco lie one place and one point off the bottom of Ligue 1 and their season has lurched from one problem to the next — with Henry unable to arrest the slide.

The 1998 World Cup winner has been little short of a disaster in his first managerial job – winning just two league matches in 12 attempts – and not managing a single victory in front of Monaco’s own supporters at the Stade Louis II.

In fact, the last time they collected three points was a 2-0 triumph at Amiens on December 4 — since when they have been dumped out of the French Cup.
