Cesc Fabregas has opened up for the first time since the removal of Thierry Henry from the managerial position at Monaco.
Despite being given ample chances the former Arsenal forward failed to live up to the expectations. Henry was supposed to propel the club towards the top half the table but the French club is sitting deep inside the relegation zone.
Fabregas left Chelsea on Henry’s insistence and joined Monaco in a bid to restore his career. The midfielder had fallen down in the pecking order at the Stamford Bridge and had hoped to be a part of Henry’s revival plans.
But with Leonardo Jardim arriving at the club, the former Barcelona midfielder must be ready for any outcome. Jardim was removed which paved the way for Henry but the club owner decided to seek his service in this crisis.
Fabregas backs Henry to succeed in the coaching role. “We’re sad for ‘Titi’ [Henry] because I really think he’ll be a top coach.
“Football does not wait and maybe it was not the right time, or he did not have time to do all his projects and everything he wanted to do.”
“I’m not going to lie, one of the main reasons I came to Monaco is that Thierry called me, he wanted me to play every game, every minute.”
