Former Arsenal striker Thiery Henry was relieved of his duties as the head coach of Monaco over the weekend following the dismal spell the Frenchman has overseen since taking over the reins at the club.

Monaco new signing Cesc Fabregas has revealed how disappointed he was after the news of Henry’s dismissal broke out, insisting that the Arsenal legend will still become a ‘top manager’ in the future.

The French manager was shown the door at Monaco after just three months at the club -three months of abysmal results and performances, it must be said.

Following his spell as assistant coach of the Belgium national team for the last few years, he was appointed the new manager of Monaco last October. This happened to be Henry’s first managerial post since retirement.

CescFabregas left the Bridge to team up with Thierry Henry at French club Monaco on January 11, both men sharing the same agent. The Spanish international signed on a three and a half deal for an undisclosed fee, reportedly worth up to $20 million.

He had struggled for game time at Chelsea under the tutelage of new manager Maurizio Sarri following the capture of Jorginho and the phenomenal N’GoloKante in the Chelsea engine room.

Fabregas could only feature in three games under Henry before the Frenchman was axed. Former club manager Leonardo Jardimwas the man appointed by the Monaco board to be his successor.

Speaking in an interview with BBC Sport, Fabregas revealed that the whole squad is sad to see Henry leave the club after spending just three months at the principality club, insisting that the former Arsenal player will go on to become a great manager in the future.

Next up for AS Monaco is a Ligue 1 home game against Toulouse on Saturday.
