AS Monaco have officially parted ways with manager Leonardo Jardim after a poor start to the season that saw ASM sit third from bottom in the league table before the international break. Monaco won the league in 2016-17 and finished second in 2017-18 behind PSG, but have been inexplicably poor this season, winning only one of their nine games so far.
While Jardim’s successor has not officially been announced, it is widely expected to be former Arsenal legend Thierry Henry, who recently rejected an offer from Championship club Aston Villa to be their new manager.
Even worse, ASM, who scored 85 goals last season and 107 the season before (when they won the Championship) have only managed 9 goals this season. PSG, meanwhile, having been scoring for fun, with Monaco old boy Kylian Mbappe starring for home- he hit four in their 5-0 demolition of Lyon before the break.
Monaco are also bottom of their Champions League group, having lost 2-1 at home to Atleti and 3-0 away at Dortmund in their opening two games. Their next 2 CL clashes against Brugge, could go a long way in determining their fate in Europe this season.
