Monaco, champions of France in 2017, are the only top flight club not to have won a single home match in Ligue 1 this season, but sources have told ESPN FC they still have faith in Henry to steer them away from the relegation zone.

Henry held a remarkable news conference on Thursday in which he confirmed he has dismissed a number of players from training with Monaco's first team. There are too many names.

Henry's situation has grown increasingly precarious and the club has been linked with a return for Leonardo Jardim, who was sacked in October.

Henry, 41, was suspended by Monaco, who are second-from-bottom in the French top division with 15 points, after the former Arsenal and France striker earned the Principality club just two league wins since his arrival in October. We will see today [Thursday],' he said. At some point, you need guys who want to save the club, who don't think about themselves. Assistant Franck Passi will take over in the meantime, with previous manager Leonardo Jardim being tipped for a surprise full-time return.

"In Dijon, it's going to be war".

Rumor: Grizzlies have been quietly gauging trade market for Marc Gasol
Conley can be terminated from his contract early in 2020-2021 and would receive $22.4 million of his $34.5 salary guaranteed. The Grizzlies drafted Conley, 31, out of Ohio State with the No. 4 pick in the 2007 National Basketball Association draft.

Henry has come under increasing pressure at the Ligue 1 side with results not improving since he took over from Leonardo Jardim in October in his first managerial role.

Henry's boyhood club were lurking in 18th position upon his introduction on the French Riviera, but after further problems on and off the pitch, the club have slipped further down the table.

The former Gunner was caught saying that Strasbourg player Kevin Lala had "a whore of a grandmother" and despite initial denial, Henry eventually apologised.

The 1998 World Cup victor revealed that there are serious problems at the Stade Louis II, and following his side's 3-1 Coupe de France defeat at home to Metz, he issued a fighting statement to his players.
