Former captain and coach of the Croatian national football team Niko Kovač will take over the position of head coach of French first league team Monaco and sign a long-term contract, the French sports daily L'Equipe announced on Saturday.
He will be replacing Spaniard Robert Moreno on the Monaco bench, who came to the position in December 2019, and under his leadership, the club from the Principality was in ninth place until the interruption of the French championship.
Niko Kovač has been out of work since November last year, when he was replaced on the Bayern Munich bench by his former assistant Hansi Flick.
Monaco will be the third club to be led by the 48-year-old Croatian expert as head coach. He spent just over two seasons on the bench at Eintracht Frankfurt with whom he won the German Cup and earned an engagement at Bayern. With the Bavarians in the 2018/2019 season he won a double domestic crown as well as the German Super Cup.
