Thierry Henry speaks out after Monaco sack

Thierry Henry said goodbye to AS Monaco fans after being dismissed as he was replaced by former boss Leonard Jardim.

Henry was suspended by the French side on Thursday night with the club insisting it will make a final decision later. The Frenchman was appointed as Monaco’s boss in October after axing Jardim but now the club has done a U-turn. The former Barcelona and Arsenal player posted a message on social media, explaining his thoughts about the decision.

“It is with great sadness that I part company with AS Monaco. Despite the struggles and difficulties that we encountered along my short journey, I have still thoroughly enjoyed my time at this wonderful club,” the message read.

“I would particularly like to thank (vice president) Vadim Vasilyev and (director) Michael Emenalo who afforded me this opportunity at my boyhood club and of course the fans and staff who have given me such a warm reception during my tenure.”

“I sincerely hope that my successor will now take AS Monaco onto greater strengths and I wish them all the success for the future, starting with a win in Dijon and lifting the cup and getting us back into Europe!'”

The 41-year-old led Monaco to four wins in 20 matches and has left the club 19th on the log, three points from safety.
