French side Monaco has confirmed that they have parted company with head coach Philipe Clement following a disappointing Ligue 1 campaign.
News of the 49-year-old’s dismissal via the club’s official website and social media platforms came less than 24 hours after Monaco’s 2-1 home defeat to Toulouse, meaning the Monagasque miss out on competing in all forms of European football next season.

Philipe Clement sacked by former Ligue 1 winners
Former Leeds United and RB Leipzig manager Jesse Marsch has been heavily linked with the vacant Monaco hot seat, with the 2017 Ligue 1 champions looking to make a decision on their new manager sooner rather than later in order to plan their summer transfer business.
And although Marsch’s name has been heavily touted, the former D.C United and Chicago Fire midfielder could bide his time with the USMNT job also on the horizon following the conclusion of the forthcoming CONCACAF Nations League and Gold Cup after B.J Callaghan was appointed on an interim basis.
