Monaco sack manager Leonardo Jardim with club struggling in Ligue 1

Aston Villa news John Terry set for the top job

Since winning the French title in 2017, Monaco have raised nearly half a billion pounds by selling players such as Kylian Mbappe (Paris Saint-Germain), Bernardo Silva and Benjamin Mendy (Manchester City), Tiemoue Bakayoko (Chelsea), Thomas Lemar (Atletico Madrid), and Fabinho (Liverpool).

After going down 2-1 at home to Rennes in Ligue 1 on Sunday, they are stuck in the relegation zone and Jardim has now been axed.

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry is set to be named Monaco's new manager after the French Ligue 1 outfit officially announced the sacking of Leonardo Jardim after four years with the club. "The entire club wish Leonardo and his coaching staff all the best for the next stage of their careers".

Speaking to the club's official website, Jardim said: "I'm grateful and proud to have been AS Monaco coach for more than four years".

Monaco are set to name former Arsenal and France striker Thierry Henry as their new manager.

With one a more elder figure and one younger, they are a better balanced duo than Henry and Terry might have been together, and they have worked together before.

"I want to thank Leonardo with deepest respect for all the work he has done", Vasilyev's said. "As Monaco manager, Leonardo has established himself as a reference point in Europe and leaves behind a very positive balance sheet".

"His passage will remain as one of the most handsome pages in the history of the club. Leonardo will still be part of the AS Monaco family".

Henry has been heavily linked with the post in recent days, reportedly turning down Aston Villa in favour of taking over at the Stade Louis II.

"Reacting to the Henry rumours, the defender was quoted as saying by French sports daily L'Equipe: "[He was] an extraordinary player and a legend at Arsenal.

As well as Henry, Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers and Rui Faria, a long-time assistant coach to Jose Mourinho, had been linked with the vacancy.
