Thierry Henry announces 1st team squad purge in bid to turn form around

AS Monaco manager Thierry Henry informed journalists in this afternoon’s press conference ahead of this weekend’s match with Dijon that he has banished multiple 1st team players to the reserves because they are not invested enough in the club’s cause to avoid relegation from Ligue 1.

“We will have to see. There were not many people at training yesterday (Wednesday). We will see today (Thursday). We must react at Dijon (to the embarrassing Coupe de France loss to Ligue 2 side Metz on Tuesday). We are in a critical situation, sadly, that has not changed. We have cut the squad down to size. At one point or another, you need guys who want to save the club, not just think about their own futures. We have done some sorting. We are going to war.”
