Monaco sack manager Leonardo Jardim

AFP  File | Thierry Henry speaks with Belgium coach Roberto Martinez

Monaco have sacked manager Leonardo Jardim, the club have announced, and Thierry Henry remains the frontrunner to replace him.

And Jardim has paid the price for Monaco's poor start to the season, which has seen them take just six points from nine league matches, while Champions League defeats to Atletico Madrid and Borussia Dortmund leave them bottom of Group A.

Aston Villa have received a setback in their managerial search with Thierry Henry reportedly snubbing them in favour of Monaco.

Speaking to the club's official website, Jardim said: "I'm grateful and proud to have been AS Monaco coach for more than four years". "I have always given my best and worked with passion. We had some great victories together and I will always keep those memories".

Monaco Vice President and Chief Executive Officer Vadim Vasilyev acknowledged Jardim's time at the French club as historic.

Henry, 41, the record goalscorer of the France national team is now the front-runner for the Monaco job, the club he started his professional career with.

He is still Roberto Martinez's assistant for the Belgium national team, but is said to be in negotiations with his potential new employees, with the report suggesting that only a few details need to be ironed out.

"His brief time will remain as one of the most lovely 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.

He ruled himself out of the running to replace Steve Bruce as Aston Villa manager before Dean Smith was appointed earlier this week.

The Arsenal legend has agreed in principle to take charge of the Ligue 1 giants, but the two parties are still discussing important details of the agreement and Henry's expectations from the club.
