Monaco has confirmed the appointment of Niko Kovac as its new manager. The ex-Bayern boss will become the Monegasque club’s fourth coach in 21 months.
The Croatian has penned a contract for three years with Stade Louis II to displace Robert Moreno, who was dismissed as a manager because of The Monegasques’ poor performance. During this campaign, Monaco finished only ninth, more than 25 points behind than PSG.
Niko Kovac has extensive experience in the football world. However, despite succeeding in the Bundesliga, as well as in the German Super Cup during the 2018/19 season, the Croatian worked only a little over a year as a manager in Bayern Munich. Kovac was fired after the club’s defeat to Frankfurt in 2019, which dropped Bayern from the top of the Bundesliga.
Monaco management believes that the new coach will be able to improve Monaco’s results. They add that Kovac’s personality traits and wide experience will assist them in accomplishing their goals.
Monaco lost their fortune after the team triumphed in Ligue 1 and joined the semi-finals of Champions League in 2017. They were almost expelled in 2019.
