Skysports Henry Thierry Football_4357407

Thierry Henry has said goodbye to Monaco fans, after being sacked and replaced by Leonardo Jardim.

The former Arsenal and Barcelona player replaced Jardim in October, but now the Ligue 1 club have done a U-turn, after he won four of his 20 matches in charge, leaving them 19th in the table, three points from safety.

Henry posted a message on his social media pages, explaining his thoughts about the decision.

He said: “It is with great sadness that I part company with AS Monaco. Despite the struggles and difficulties that we encountered along my short journey, I have still thoroughly enjoyed my time at this wonderful club.

“I would particularly like to thank (vice president) Vadim Vasilyev and (director) Michael Emenalo who afforded me this opportunity at my boyhood club and of course the fans and staff who have given me such a warm reception during my tenure.

“I sincerely hope that my successor will now take AS Monaco onto greater strengths and I wish them all the success for the future, starting with a win in Dijon and lifting the cup and getting us back into Europe!”

Naomi Osaka Sued By Former Tennis Coach, Demands 20% For Life

Published

The tennis coach who began working with Naomi Osaka back when she was 13 claims her father signed a contract promising him 20% of her career earnings … and now he’s coming to collect.

The man behind the lawsuit is Christophe Jean — who says Naomi’s father, Leonard Francois, hired him to work with Naomi and his other daughter, Mari, back in 2011.

Jean says Francois couldn’t pay his rates at the time, so they struck a deal in which Jean agreed to accept 20% of Naomi and Mari’s tennis prize money and endorsement deals forever.

That’s not a typo … Jean says he has a copy of the contract where Francois agrees that the term of the deal is “indefinite.” It’s included in Jean’s suit, filed in state court in Florida.

Of course, Naomi — now 21 years old — has blossomed into a tennis superstar, currently ranked #1 in the world … and famously beat Serena Williams at the 2018 US Open.

ccording to the official WTA website, she’s made more than $10.8 MILLION during her career — and that’s not including endorsement money.

So, Jean wants his cut — at least $2 million — which is why he’s suing Naomi, Mari and Leonard.

The other possible issue … can a parent promise a cut of a minor child’s future adult earnings? And, can a judge enforce such a contract?

It’s not exactly cut and dry. We’re looking into it.
