It's reasonable to sack a guy after 3 months... and then replace him with the guy you sacked 3 months earlier that he was supposedly better than?
To be honest, in this crazy business called football, nothing is ridiculous to me anylonger. The fastest success is the only thing what still counts. All the more it is a famous club like Monaco with high expectations. Managers nowadays have no time to build a team up, they have to work instantly, otherwise they are sacked...

Jardim was at Monaco for 4.5 years and had one of their most successful periods so I'm not surprised they have gone back to him.
The owners have probably accept that it was their mass sale of players rather than Jardim being a bad coach or players not responding to why they are struggling. He knows the club already so less risk than taking another punt on a new manager. Not a lot of time to avoid relegation!

The pundits talking about formations and strategy know **** all about coaching a team
It sounds like they might have struggled to get someone else in, and apparently Jardim was still bumping into his players in the bakery and within the locality so they probably felt the relationship wasn't too fractured for him to be asked back. Financially, he's got a payoff and another salary from them!
But for Henry, those Renault ads are going to be used endlessly in the banter when he inevitably returns to Sky Sports next season but quite early on it seemed he wasn't a head coach material. He was telling Falcao how to call for the ball (Moyes-esque with him showing Ferdinand a video of Jagielka) and he doesn't seem to have that warmth to relate to players. Maybe he'll come back into the game as an assistant coach, or a specialist striker coach but not as the main man.
Monaco finally won on Saturday didn't they?
