Aston Villa news John Terry set for the top job

Thierry Henry is set to be confirmed as Monaco's new manager this weekend and the former Arsenal star is ready to raid hi old club as he finalises plans for his backroom team.

Monaco have officially sacked title-winning coach Leonardo Jardim, with reports suggesting Thierry Henry has been lined up as his replacement.

After going down 2-1 at home to Rennes in Ligue 1 on Sunday, they are stuck in the relegation playoff spot with six points, one more than bottom side Guingamp.

According to ESPN, Henry will return to the club he began his professional career at, and with whom he lifted the Ligue 1 title in the 1996/97 campaign.

In a club statement, Jardim said: "I'm grateful and proud to have been Monaco coach for more than four years".

Jardim took over at Monaco in 2014 and counts the likes of Sporting CP, Olympiacos and Braga among his former clubs. I've always given my very best and worked with passion.




"We have won enjoyed great victories together and I will always keep those memories with me".

Henry was youth player with the club and scored seven goals in the 1997-8 Champions League as another talented Monaco team, this one coached by Arsene Wenger, reached the semi-finals, where they lost to Juventus.

"I want to thank Leonardo with deepest respect for all the work he has done", Vasilyev's said.

It is thought the 41-year-old was offered the vacant Aston Villa job on Wednesday, but turned it down after being approached by former club Monaco.

"His time here will remain as one of the most attractive pages in the history of the club".

Rumours are rife that Monaco are on the cusp of sacking their manager Leonardo Jardim following a wretched start to the new season.
