Portuguese boss Jardim was appointed in 2014 and led the club to the French title in 2017, their first since 2000.

And Jardim has paid the price for Monaco's poor start to the season, which has seen them take just six points from nine league matches, while Champions League defeats to Atletico Madrid and Borussia Dortmund leave them bottom of Group A.

The Ligue 1 side announced Jardim's departure from the club on Thursday after dropping to 18th on the log, having won only one league game so far this season.

It's the club where he first became a professional after graduating through the Clairfontaine and Monaco youth system, and he played a role as a left midfielder or left winger in Monaco's 1996-1997 Ligue 1 title.

"I am grateful and proud to have been able to coach AS Monaco for more than four years".

Monaco defender Benjamin Henrichs has revealed his intrigue at the possibility of working under Thierry Henry at the Stade Louis II.

With one a more elder figure and one younger, they are a better balanced duo than Henry and Terry might have been together, and they have worked together before.

Thierry Henry will this weekend begin his managerial career as the finishing touches are put to a three-year deal at Monaco.

Monaco chief executive Vadim Vasilyev added: "I want to thank Leonardo with deepest respect for all the work he has done".

"His tenure will remain as one of the most attractive pages in the history of the club".

Rumours are rife that Monaco are on the cusp of sacking their manager Leonardo Jardim following a wretched start to the new season.

The Frenchman is assistant to Roberto Martinez at Belgium and had been linked with the job at Aston Villa but sources have told ESPN FC that he is set to take over at Monaco.
