Jardim no longer Monaco coach
Leonardo Jardim, the man who led Monaco to the 2017 Ligue 1 Conforama title, has been relieved of his functions at the Principality club.
Monaco finished on the podium in each of his four full seasons at the club, also reaching the Champions League semi-finals in 2016-2017. The Russian owned club also made the quarter-finals of that competition under him in 2014-2015 and reached the Coupe de la Ligue final twice (2017 and 2018).
A club statement read: "The whole club wishes Leonardo Jardim, as well as his staff, the best for the rest of their careers."
Jardim added: "I'm grateful and proud to have been AS Monaco coach for more than four years. I've always given my very best and worked with passion. We achieved some great victories together and I'll always keep those memories. Daghe Munegu."
Vadim Vasilyev, Monaco Vice-President and Chief Executive Officer, said: "I want to thank with deepest respect Leonardo for all the work done. Leonardo has established himself on the bench of AS Monaco as a reference in Europe and leaves behind a very positive balance sheet. His passage will remain as one of the most beautiful pages in the history of the club. Leonardo will still be part of the AS Monaco family."
