A statement from the club website read: “Leonardo Jardim has signed a two-and-a-half-year contract with the Club and, together with his technical staff, will take up his duties as of Sunday,”
“This Friday, the club officially terminated the employment of Thierry Henry. Franck Passi, who led the training session this afternoon, will be in charge of the team for the upcoming match against Dijon.”
Jardim was only sacked by Monaco three and a half months ago.
Vadim Vasilyev, the vice-president if Monaco: “Thierry Henry is a football legend but due to a very unfavourable mix of circumstances, including, above all, numerous injuries to our players, hampered him from quickly and effectively leading the team out of the crisis,” said Vadim Vasilyev, the vice-president if Monaco.
“Therefore, we have made a decision to end our partnership with Thierry Henry.
“We approached Leonardo Jardim with a proposal to return to AS Monaco, where he had already achieved excellent results over the course of four seasons. We have signed a contract for two and a half years.
