The latest news coming out of French football media is that AS Monaco has suspended their manager Thierry Henry.
The former Arsenal and French forward took over the club but has been unable to guide them to safety so far this season in the league table. Things went from bad to worse in Henry’s last press conference when he openly challenged the players in the club and declared war on most of them.
“You have to see. There were not too many people in training yesterday. We’ll see today,” Henry said. “It’s important to see the reaction at Dijon. We are in a critical situation – unfortunately, that has not changed. We tightened up the group. At some point, you need guys who want to save the club, who don’t think about themselves. We’re sorting it out. We’re going to war.”
When asked which players would be left out, Henry replied: “You’re going to see the team. There are too many names.”
It now seems that Henry seem to be on the losing side of the war as the club has suspended him rather than any of the players facing any action, at least in the eye of the public.
