French club Monaco have announced the sacking of coach Nico Covac after spending 18 months with the team, and Stephen Nado, the club’s reserve coach, will take over as interim coach.
Sharjah 24 – Azad Khalil:
After spending 18 months with the Monaco team, the coach of the first football team fired Nico Kovac.
Kovac, the former coach of Bayern Munich, took over as coach of Monaco in July 2020, following Robert Moreno, who took the team to third place in the only season he completed with a three-year contract.
However, Monaco lost to Ukraine’s Shakhtar Donetsk in the knockout stages of the Champions League in August, and the team is sixth in the French League 1 after 19 rounds.
With three wins from their last four league games in 2021 the team was able to recover somewhat from its position, but the club confirmed that Kovac had been relieved of his duties.
Stephen Nado, the club’s reserve coach, will coach the first team on a temporary basis until he is signed as a replacement for Goa, who have played 74 games in his first job since leaving Bayern.
One of the most important candidates to coach Monaco is Philip Clement, coach of the Belgian club Brooke and Jesse Marsch, who left Leipzig last month.
Monaco face Quillie in the Kings Cup on Sunday, before resuming their match against Nantes in the French League on the 9th of this month.
