More an­guish in store for Henry

The Citizen (KZN) - - SPORT - Paris

– Win­less in 15 matches and com­ing off the club’s heav­i­est Eu­ro­pean home de­feat, it could well get worse for Thierry Henry and Monaco this week­end with the visit of run­away Ligue 1 lead­ers Paris Saint-Ger­main.

Monaco’s flick­er­ing Cham­pi­ons League knock­out hopes fiz­zled out com­pletely with a “shame­ful” 4-0 de­feat by Club Brugge in mid­week, leav­ing Henry still chas­ing his first vic­tory as man­ager since tak­ing over from the axed Leonardo Jardim.

The odds are mas­sively stacked against his in­jury-de­pleted side end­ing that wait to­mor­row. Monaco have lost their last seven meet­ings with PSG – in­clud­ing a 7-1 thrash­ing in the last league clash in April.

Mean­while, PSG are off to a record-set­ting start with 12 suc­ces­sive wins, the best-ever start to any of Europe’s big five leagues. – AFP
