Monaco Suspend Henry

Monaco Suspend Henry

Thierry Henry has been suspended by Monaco just over three months after his appointment.

The club, who have won only two league games under Henry and are second from bottom of Ligue 1, said a final decision would be taken on the former striker’s future and that Franck Passi would train the first team on Friday.

Until his suspension, Henry has been in charge for 104 days and 20 matches. Monaco lost to the League 2 side Metz in the French Cup on Tuesday, having been beaten 5-1 at home by Strasbourg in the league last Saturday.

Henry had talked bullishly earlier on Thursday, saying his team were “going to war” in Saturday’s game against Dijon after five league matches without a win.

“We need guys who want to save the club, who don’t think about themselves,” Henry said. Asked who would be left out at Dijon, he replied:

“You will see. There are too many names.”

Monaco gave Henry, one of their former players, his first job as a manager after he had worked as an assistant to Roberto Martínez with Belgium, including at the World Cup.

    A child learns to sit before crawling, he learns to crawl before walking. All these players that retire and then want to become the top boss immediately, yall better learn to grow into a career.

      Shut your smelly mouth yesterday you were hailing Aghahowa’s verdict on @Supereagles and castigated myself and Omo9ja with all your bogus facts to entertainment naive minds and I sounded this Henry and co as one the examples of good players that doesn’t necessarily translate to a good coach young man always come straight and stand by your words there’s more to life than this fake attitude of yours that when it goes bad you change your mouth!

        Hahahahaha….fool….lmao. Why are you coming here to rant after I shut your gutter on the other page. How does my comment yesterday relate to this one. Pls point out above where I have written that Henry isn’t a good coach. Olodo. Bloody illiterate coming here to bragg for us. Simple English you cant comprehend. how does …..”All these players that retire and then want to become the top boss immediately, yall better learn to grow into a career”…….translates to become..”Henry is a bad coach”….
        Better go back to school and learn english…reading, comprehension and writing…Onukwu…!!!

    Lol..’simple English u cannot comprehend’ this one actually got me lol… I’m actually on the same page with u @drey on this matter. I think,retired players need to take their time and learn the ropes before taking up the coaching mantle.it’s not magic but a Long term process. Monaco is too big a club for him to handle at this stage. He should start from lower cadre clubs and then rise thru the ranks.

      Abi o. My Oga. Zidane started from madrid youth team, moved to the castilla, and even the reserve team before being handed the Senior team. Pep Guardiolla also towed the same pattern. Ole gunner solskjear who is doin wonders with Man Utd now also didnt start climbing the ladder from the top…infact he led cardiff city to relegation once sef. This pattern only helps budding coaches to start at positons where there is less pressure and hence, afford them lots of opportunities to make mistakes without being punished and then learn from thier mistakes, before stepping up to bigger levels. Just like Gary neville’s failure at Valencia, Henry transiting from being a tv pundit to being assitant to roberto martinez isnt enough to handle a big team like Monaco, who buy the wasy was even in crisis. It is easier to critisize other coaches from an arm chair…oya you sef go and coach and let us see na. lolz. Ryan Giggs too thought he could just step unto the mantle at Man utd some seasons ago….the boy hear am hot. It paul scholes im still waiting for. That one yeye still dey come for front. The strides of Lampard and Gerrard is worth emulating. In those two, i see coaches who will rival themselves in the EPL for years to come.
      That was my point of view o. Before that frustrated illiterate started ranting out of point. lolz

    Often times we don’t rant with high school drop outs. Birds of same feather will always fly together just like by their fruit we know them. If a person does well today they will come singing praise and the next day if that person goes bad this same idiots will come cursing. Journeymen as I will best describe you drey  and your naive imbecile cohorts better get a proper life because if you keep fooling at your youths you’ll only grow into wayward old cowards walking the streets of dramatic Nigeria. I sorry for your kinds suffering and smiling motto tag will do no good to your pretentious life. That aside I will keep clapping to the most high day in and out for the comfort I have in all field of life today where I have more than enough. Keep hating and I shall keep Soaring in the land of plenty

      Hahahaha……Eberibe…Ibiakwa…! You can bragg…! What have you not come here to bragg about. From being 5 and 6 with top agents and TV pundits….to even bragging of having access to free internet….LMAO.
      You really should be ashamed of yourself. Mr richest man on CSN….financial analyst that cannot analyse simple figures. LMAO.
      Isnt it a shame that those high school drop outs can understand english, write and analyse in english more than you…? Yeye village man who managed to find himself in europe and now thinks everyone else is inferior to him. Congratulations that you have comfort in all fields according to you. Im also glad to tell you for free that everyother member of this forum also has comfort in their fields. So what else…???
      You will claim you know football, even more than ex players who played the game to the highest level, yet a player who is playing in gorica is FAR BETTER than the one playing in Torino. A striker who averages less than 2 league goals per season i FAR BETTER that a player whose score average of 1 goals in 3 matches for both club and country. A coach who has relegated 3 clubs in nigerian league is FAR BETTER than another who has won a league title, a cup and a european club competition silver medal……hahahaha…mr Financial analyst cum soccer analyst per excellence. LMAO. weldone ehn….i only pitty the people whose finances you analyze. LMAO.
      I always knew you were daft, but didnt know you were so daft. The way you rant out of point nowadays confirms it. We were talking aghaowa’s comments about the SE and AFCON…you came out comparing Aghahowa and ighalo…and i duly shut your silly mouth with facts and figures. Now we are talking of young coaches learning their ropes with smaller clubs before handling bigger ones, you are here talking about ex-players not being good coaches…..pls who stole your sense away from you sef…?
      Just like someone else advised you on the other thread, pls do yourself a favour and go back to school. its FAR BETTER being a high school dropout who can comprehend english and anylse discussions sensibly and logically, than being a “world class” financial analyst who is always ranting out of point.
      Thats a kind advise. No puns intended……LMAO
