French Side, Monaco have suspended its head coach Thierry Henry until a final decision is made on his future three months after he was employed.
Leonardo Jardim his predecessor now looks set to make a shock return to the club.
At a news conference earlier on Thursday, Henry had spoken of making sweeping changes to his team ahead of Saturday’s game against Dijon saying:

“We need guys who want to save the club, who don’t think about themselves. We’re going to war.”
“Asked who would be left out, he replied: “You will see. There are too many names.”
Thierry Henry’s replacement Leonardo Jardim now looks set for a surprise comeback as Monaco head coach.
The former Arsenal star managed just five wins in all competitions in his three months in charge of the Ligue 1 team, who are in the relegation zone, two points from safety.
Henry is yet to win a home league game, with their last match at the Stade Louis II ending in an embarrassing 3-1 French Cup defeat to Ligue 2 side Metz.
Henry in loggerheads with his players accused some of them of only caring about their own futures, shortly before he was suspended by the French club.
Their previous game there resulted in a dreadful 5-1 league defeat to Strasbourg, meaning Monaco have not won at home since May last season.
Henry – who has won just two of his 12 Ligue 1 matches – was forced to apologise for insulting Strasbourg defender Kenny Lala during their recent league defeat.
