Henry out, Jardim back as Monaco boss

Henry set to earn massive paycheck as Monaco re-appoints Jardim as coach

The French legend ended his tenure as Les Princes coach after just 104 days at the helm.

Monaco has decided to part ways with Thierry Henry after just three and a half months. The risky decision lasted for only 104 days, and now, Monaco will have to fight back to keep themselves as a Ligue 1 team.

Surprisingly, the man who left his place for Henry has been handed his old job back. Leonardo Jardim will sit down in Monaco's hot-seat for the next two and a half years after putting pen to paper to a new deal with the 2016-17 Ligue 1 champions. 

During the press conference where Monaco announced Jardim's return, team vice-president Vadim Vasilyev admitted that firing Jardim back in October was a wrong move, especially since the club did not give him enough tools to shine in the ongoing season.

"The decision to sack Leonardo Jardim was adopted prematurely. His stint as Monaco's boss is one of the most beautiful pages in this club's history. Today we asked Leonardo to come back, given that his work over the past four seasons has been great. He committed to a two-and-a-half year deal with us," Vasilyev stated.

The team's exec asked people to take the blame away from Thierry Henry for the club's shaky performances this season.

"Thierry Henry is a football legend, but there were circumstances that he could not control. There were several injuries to key players that did not help him in his efforts to get us out of our current crisis," the team's VP added.

Henry's former assistant Franck Passi will be in charge of leading Monaco to three points against Dijon on Saturday evening, being this a crucial tie in their battle to avoid relegation.

Henry handed massive severance paycheck after 104 days as Monaco's boss

1998 World Cup winner Thierry Henry had disastrous results in his first stint as coach. Despite that fact, the former Arsenal star earned himself quite a handsome paycheck for his 104 days as Monaco's tactician.

A report by the Mirror suggests that Henry was promised a full severance pay-off if he was sacked at any point of his three-year deal with the white-and-red side. Henry's deal guaranteed the former footballer $3.7M per season, which means that Monaco will have to pay their former boss $11M for just 104 days at the helm.

Now, the real question in the air makes us wonder if Henry will get a second chance with a top-caliber team...
