Explained: Why Henry failed at Monaco

26 Jan 2019, 12:05

French football expert Jonathan Johnson has explained why Thierry Henry failed at Monaco.

Henry was sacked just three months into his first senior managerial job where he won just two Ligue 1 matches. Leonardo Jardim was reappointed to take charge of the team that is languishing deep in the relegation zone.

“It was always going to be a massive challenge for Henry because of the situation he was walking into. Monaco were not in a good state before he came over and things have not turned around since. Monaco's results have not picked up and he has not been able to win the squad over. He did add a couple of members to the squad during the January transfer window, but the senior members of the squad do not feel happier playing under him than were towards the end of Leonardo Jardim's time in charge.” Johnson told the Transfer Talk podcast.

Henry’s supposed lack of respect to opponents and his players is another reason why, according to Johnson, the former French superstar did not succeed.

"Most importantly, he doesn't seem to show much respect to the players and to opponents either. So a lot of the players in the squad felt his behavior didn't befit that of a top club's coach. They went to the Monaco hierarchy and the leaders of Monaco had to make a decision at that moment. It has not been an easy couple of months, certainly not a great introduction to coaching for Henry and he may well have learned some valuable lessons from this experience.” Johnson said.

Henry signed former teammate Cesc Fabregas and his departure means their time together has come to an abrupt halt.
