Reports surfaced earlier today claiming the former Arsenal striker would be sacked by Monaco and replaced by his predecessor in the Monaco dugout, Leonardo Jardim.
While he has not officially been sacked, this announcement is a strong indication that his formal dismissal is imminent.
The club announced that Franck Passi will take first team training this Friday.
Since taking over at Monaco in his first managerial job, Henry has failed to get them out of the relegation zone, with just four wins from 20 matches in all competitions.
Desperate times call for desperate measures.
