AS Monaco have announced that they have suspended Thierry Henry as the head coach of the club following a poor run of results in his reign.
Henry was only appointed the manager of the French club earlier this season and has been dismissed after a run of horrible results that see them in the relegation zone.

The Arsenal and France legend’s side have not won in the league since the start of December when they beat Amiens 2-0.
The 41-year-old took over from Leonardo Jardim three months ago but his tenure has gone from bad to worse.
However, the Portuguese boss is reportedly set to get his job back, while the club’s official statement says they have suspended Thierry of his duties as they wait to make a final decision on his future.
In a statement, they wrote: “AS Monaco announces that it has decided to suspend its duties as coach of the first team Thierry Henry from this day and waiting for a final decision.”
“Franck Passi will train the professional group this Friday.”
BBC journalist David Ornstein tweeted: “Thierry Henry’s suspension as Monaco coach pending a final decision is merely procedural – he has been sacked and has left the club. A statement is expected from Henry in due course. His predecessor Leonardo Jardim is set to return – a hearing deal has already been done.”
Just 20 games but it’s all over for Thierry Henry at Monaco.

Henry’s last game in charge was the French Cup defeat to Metz earlier this week as he managed only four wins in 20 games.
