The French club sacked manager Leonardo Jardim on Thursday and Henry, who rebuffed an advance from Aston Villa, will now leave his role as assistant manager to Belgium head coach Roberto Martinez.

The club now sit in the relegation zone in 18th place, with just six points out of its first nine games.

But, after winning 3-1 at Nantes on the opening day of the season, Monaco failed to win any of their subsequent eight league games and lost to Atletico Madrid and Borussia Dortmund in Champions League Group A, which also includes Club Bruges.

"I would like to salute Leonardo with the utmost respect for all the work done", AS Monaco Vice-President Vadim Vasilyev said in a statement.

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.

Do you think Henry could lead Monaco back up the table?

Director Stephen Stewart said: "Even though power cuts are rare, during times of heavy rain and flooding they become more likely". Further strong winds may bring down leaves and branches, increasing the likelihood of flooding due to blocked drains or culverts.

Thierry Henry is set to be confirmed as Monaco's new manager this weekend and the former Arsenal star is ready to raid hi old club as he finalises plans for his backroom team.

With one a more elder figure and one younger, they are a better balanced duo than Henry and Terry might have been together, and they have worked together before.

Thierry Henry's first job as manager of a soccer team could be at one of his old stomping grounds.

In the 2016-17 season, Monaco upstaged big-spending Paris St Germain to end the capital club's run of four successive titles, before finishing second last term.

"His passage 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.
