Club Monaco, which is competing in the French Premier League, announced on Sunday the appointment of Croatian Nico Kovac as his new coach, to succeed the Spanish coach Robert Moreno.”Monaco is delighted to announce the arrival of Niko Kovac to train the team. The Croatian signed a 3-year contract with a clause allowing for extension,” Monaco said in a statement.
Kovac previously coached the German giant “Bayern Munich” in the 2018/2019 season, after a period of work with “Eintracht Frankfurt”, which led him to win the German Cup title.Kovac, together with “Bayern”, won the German Cup, Bundesliga and the local Super Cup, before leaving the team last November, due to poor results.
And Monaco had sacked early last week Moreno, who took charge of the team instead of Leonardo Jardim, in January 2019.
And “Monaco” ranked ninth in the French League, 28 points behind Paris Saint-Germain, who was crowned the champion of the competition, after the premature termination of the season, due to the pandemic of the Corona virus.
