Paris Saint-Germain captain Thiago Silva says Thierry Henry is not to blame for AS Monaco’s dreadful season
Les Monégasques have collected just one win in 13 Ligue 1 games following Sunday’s 4-0 thrashing at the hands of PSG.
An Edinson Cavani hat-trick along with Neymar’s penalty condemned Henry to a fourth defeat in six games in charge of Monaco.
But Silva feels that the under-fire Monaco coach can turn things around once things get a little less difficult at the club.
Currently, Monaco have 12 players sidelined with injuries.
“Monaco’s situation is complicated,” said Silva, according to Goal.
“People talk a lot about the head coach. But I think the coach is the least guilty of all this.
“For two years [since] they won the championship, players have left and they cannot easily replace them. This makes things harder, this replenishment.
“Henry is going to have a lot of work to do to get the team back on the road to winning.
“If I’m not mistaken he has not won yet. But he has a history in football, a winning story.
“I’m sure he’ll do good things for this group and get out of this situation.
“But it will not be an easy situation, if I am not mistaken there are 12 injuries or more. It is a very difficult situation.”
Monaco will next take a trip to Caen on November 24 for another Ligue 1 fixture.
