Monaco appoint Niko Kovac as new head coach on three-year deal. Kovac replaces Robert Moreno to become Monaco’s fourth new manager in less than two years.
Monaco have appointed former Bayern Munich and Croatia boss Niko Kovac as their new manager.
The 48-year-old has signed a three-year deal with the Ligue 1 club, who sacked Robert Moreno at the weekend after finishing ninth – 28 points behind champions PSG.
Monaco vice-president Oleg Petrov said: “We are very happy to welcome Niko Kovac to the club. This season marks the start of a new chapter for Monaco, with a defined sporting plan in line with the club’s objectives. This direction will be embodied by Niko as coach.
“Niko is recognised for his work both for the national team. That’s also his work in club environments, in the development of young talent, the management of experienced players and the ability to achieve very good results.
