Monaco are set to name former Arsenal and France striker Thierry Henry as their new manager after deciding to sack Leonardo Jardim, sources have told ESPN FC.
Monaco have not won since the opening day in any competition,and Sunday’s loss at home to Rennes extended their run of consecutive defeats to four games,and 10 matches without a win.
There are now just a few details to be ironed out between Henry and Monaco before he will be officially confirmed at Stade Louis II stadium.
Henry watched Monaco’s 2-1 Champions League defeat to Atletico Madrid last month and has been persuaded to take the job after seeking advice from France coach Didier Deschamps.
He believes Monaco is the right project for his first move into management and is confident of turning the club’s season around.
