With Monaco suffering another setback following a Cup exit to FC Metz, Thierry Henry was quick to admit concerns about the future of the club.
Henry insisted he is more concerned about the club’s future than his own after suggesting the club owners are in the best position to decide his stay.
Monaco were knocked out of the Coupe de France with a 3-1 loss to Metz on Tuesday which further compounded their woes as they battle for survival in Ligue 1.
Henry who formerly played for the club only took over in October, but he has been unable to turn around their struggles this season.
However, the Frenchman said any decision over his future was in the owners’ hands, with his focus on Monaco.
“My future? Owners would decide when they need to decide. I am more worried for Monaco’s future. I already said that,” Henry told a news conference via FourFourTwo.
“I will repeat. No need to always ask the same question, I would answer the same thing – Atletico Madrid have been relegated in the 90s with stronger players than us. [Real] Zaragoza as well more recently as you know. I could talk about all the leagues.
“We are in this situation, even if it was Coupe de France and now we are out but this weekend against Dijon in Ligue 1 it’s going to be war.”
Monaco face fellow strugglers Dijon on Saturday as they fight to avoid the drop.
