DERBY WIN AGAIN
Monaco have suspended manager Thierry Henry while they make a decision on his future.
There had been speculation that the Ligue 1 strugglers were set to sack the France World Cup winner and replace him with predecessor Leonardo Jardim.
The 2017 French champions are in the relegation zone after five wins in 20 games under Henry, hired in October.
Franck Passi, appointed as Henry's assistant on 20 December, will take training on Friday, the club said.
Passi has previously had spells as caretaker manager of Marseille and Lille.
Henry had apologised for using foul language to insult Strasbourg defender Kenny Lala during his side's 5-1 defeat on Saturday.
Arsenal's all-time leading scorer is in his first managerial role, having previously been Belgium assistant boss.
He had been on the shortlist for the Aston Villa's manager's job in October before taking the job at the club where he started his playing career.
Apparently he looked completely out of his depth and overawed by the experience.
Leonard Jardim is in talks to return. Mental.
You only had to listen to him analysing game's on Sky to know he was * clueless..
Surprised he lasted this long.
No way should they be in the relegation zone, they still have some real talent in that squad.
Saw the game. As soon as PSG scored it was all Lyon. Seen 4/5 PSG games this season in the league and haven’t been impressed, always seem to miss the 5+ nil beatings suprised they are so far ahead. Mbappe is unreal though.
Dembele had a decent game. Coulda had another goal near end of game.
Nice - Lyon on now. Late Sunday’s Ligue games have been good lately.
Mario Balotelli never change
