Arsenal Legend Thierry Henry in Line to Be New Monaco Manager

Arsenal legend and Belgium Assistant Coach Thierry Henry had been a part of the early speculation and consideration concerning who would become Arsene Wenger’s successor. Obviously that didn’t happen and the job went to Unai Emery instead. The Gunners are off to a fine start we might add, and it appears that Henry is going to get a head coaching job in 2018 after all- with Monaco.

The Ligue 1 side is on the verge of sacking Leonardo Jardim as they currently sit in 18th place of the France top flight table, just one point above dead last. Les Rouges et Blancs are winless in their last 10 and reportedly change is imminent, just two seasons after winning the league title.

All signs point to Henry.

The Sydney Morning Herald cites French newspaper L’Equipe’s report indicating that the Frenchman: “who has also been linked with Championship side Aston Villa in recent days, is Monaco’s first choice. The former Arsenal star is understood to have impressed the Villa hierarchy in an interview.”

Meanwhile ESPN has taken the narrative substantially further, saying that Jardim will be sacked and that Thierry Henry is his replacement but also cautions that there are “still a few details to be ironed out between Henry and Monaco before he will be officially confirmed at Stade Louis II stadium.”

Henry was a youth player at Monaco, and played for the club for five seasons (including a league title winning campaign) before moving on to Juventus.
