Cesc Fabregas says he joined Monaco because of his former teammate at Arsenal Thierry Henry – Fabregas stated this while reacting to the sacking of Henry who was fired for poor results.
Thierry Henry recorded just two wins in his short stint at Ligue 1 club Monaco Cesc Fabregas has reacted to the sacking of former teammate Thierry Henry at Monaco claiming that he joined the French club because of the ex Arsenal striker.
Fabregas completed his move from Premier League side Chelsea on January 11 to the Ligue 1 club and Henry was sacked just two weeks later. Thierry Henry was shown the exit doors at Monaco because of poor results that left the club second from bottom with just 15 points from 21 games.
The Frenchman won two matches out of 12 during his short return to Stade Louis II as he lasted just over 100 days. Fabregas who played with Thierry Henry at Arsenal between 2003 and 2007 has now expressed how he feels about the way his old pal was axed at Monaco.
“Football doesn’t wait for anyone. That is life, it happens. “Maybe it was not the right moment or he didn’t have the time to fulfill all his plans and everything he wanted to do.
“I am not going to lie, one of the main reasons for me coming to Monaco is that Thierry called me. “He wanted me to play every game, every minute. “We are sad for ‘Titi’ because I really think he will be a top coach, I am sure of it,” Fabregas explained according to the report by UK Sun.
Earlier, It’s understood how Monaco sacked Thierry Henry as manager after recording strings of poor results since arriving three months ago.
The Arsenal legend has been told his services are no longer needed with former manager Leonardo Jardim lined up for a shock return. Jardim was deemed surplus to requirement in October, making way for the ex-Gunners striker, and now the club are willing to take him back to avoid being relegated to the second division.
