Thierry Henry given Monaco vote of confidence despite poor form

Monaco have reportedly given Thierry Henry his marching orders

Chelsea ace Eden Hazard has sent a message of support to his former Belgium coach Thierry Henry after the Frenchman was suspended by Monaco.

Henry's assistant Franck Passi will now take over as caretaker manager until a replacement is found.

Since taking the vacant post at former club Monaco in October, Henry has lost 11 of the 20 games he has been in charge for - scoring 15 goals and conceding a whopping 36.

Henry's woes were compounded when he was forced into a grovelling apology to Strasbourg's Kenny Lala after he was caught shouting, "your grandmother's a whore" at the player.

Despite reaching the Coupe de la Ligue semifinals, Henry has only overseen two league wins and announced earlier on Thursday that he would be ridding his squad of uncommitted players ahead of the fight against the drop.

Asked who would be left out at Dijon, he replied: "You will see. There are too many names".

"We must react at Dijon [on Saturday]", he said.

The French outfit has picked up just two wins in 12 league matches since the France all-time record goalscorers' appointment, a far cry from being UEFA Champions League semi-finalists two seasons ago.

"We will create a small group to go on a mission. It is necessary to get out of this critical situation and quickly".

And when you think about it, that basically means that he has to wait around to be told that he's been sacked.

Their miserable form under Henry culminated in a humiliating 3-1 French Cup defeat to second-tier Metz on Tuesday and a 5-1 home Ligue 1 hammering by Strasbourg last weekend, during which the tension surrounding Henry began to show.

The club deliberated over his future during the past week but appeared to have settled on keeping Henry at the club.

Jardim's return is all the more absurd for the fact that Monaco paid him several million as a payoff only in October when he left the club with the team languishing in the playoff places.
