Monaco fired Thierry Henry and re-hired title-winning coach Leonardo Jardim on Friday, just three months after sacking him to make way for the France great.

Henry won four of 20 matches after replacing Jardim in mid-October. Jardim is back after signing a two-and-a-half-year contract.

Monaco is second from bottom in the French league ahead of Saturday’s trip to fellow struggler Dijon.
