Thierry Henry has rejected an offer from Aston Villa to take over as their new manager in the wake of Steve Bruce’s cabbage-fuelled dismissal last week.
Instead, Henry is gearing up to be announced as the new head coach of AS Monaco, who are reportedly planning to fire Leonardo Jardim in the very near future.
Jardim has been in situ at the Stade Louis II since 2014, winning the Ligue 1 title in 2016/17, but his side are not faring well this season. Indeed, they are currently wallowing in the relegation zone without a win in their last 10 outings.

Henry played for Monaco at the very start of his career before moving on to Juventus and Arsenal et al and is now set to take his first senior managerial role with the club.
The Frenchman is currently employed as assistant coach to Roberto Martinez with the Belgium national team, though we imagine that will all be coming to an end very shortly.
