Monaco sack Robert Moreno after seven months in charge

Robert Moreno has been sacked by Monaco after only seven months in charge of the Ligue 1 club.

The 42-year-old took over last December when they were seventh in the table - they eventually finished ninth when the season was halted early because of the coronavirus pandemic.

"Our paths are separating earlier than expected," said Monaco vice-president Oleg Petrov.

"Robert did everything possible to improve the team."

There are reports already that former Bayern Munich coach Niko Kovac will be named as Moreno's replacement.
