French Ligue One side AS Monaco has named former Croatia national team coach and ex Bayern Munich boss Niko Kovac their new manager.
A statement on Monaco’s website noted: “AS Monaco is pleased to announce the arrival of Niko Kovac as the head coach. The Croatian technician has signed a three-year contract, with an option of extension.”
The tactician who has already taken training with his new club had a good outing at Bayern where he won the German Supercup, the German Cup and the Bundesliga during the 2018-19 season; the tactician leading the Bavarians to 45 victories in 65 matches during his time with the Bundesliga giants.
He was the Croatian national team coach between 2013 and 2015 and was in charge of the team in the 2014 World Cup. He was to move to Germany with Eintracht Frankfurt where he led them to the German Cup triumph in 2018.
The tactician arrives to replace Robert Moreno who was sacked three days ago after only seven months in charge.
