I expected this. A club played in semi-final in champions league years ago and in this competition usually has not the ambition for relegation, that is a desaster. Hard, but reasonable decision.

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...

Being sacked after 3 months is nothing new now.

But to replace him with the guy who 3 months ago was the one who got sacked...

Agree, this is idiotic and a sign of desperate doing by Monaco. Or as you said: a joke!

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!

Jardim forcing the club to publicly admit their mistakes before he comes back is as delicious as the bumper paid holiday he effectively received.

He was sacked just 3 months ago for, supposedly, not being good enough and the club's poor record. Now he's the logical choice to change the club's exact same record!

One would assume he was still on the Monaco payroll and it's cheaper to bring him back rather than hire a replacement.

Doesn't make it any less ridiculous though.

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.
