The first meeting with his new players took place without fans and press because of the Corona crisis. The 48-year-old is to be presented in a press conference as soon as possible, as the club announced.
More than eight months after he left FC Bayern, Kovac takes on a new position and replaces the previous coach Robert Moreno, who only started at the turn of the year. The Munich double winner from 2019 received a three-year contract with Monegassen.
Kovac had announced before the Corona compulsory break that he was aiming for a summer engagement. Kovac was released on November 3, 2019 after a 1: 5 at Eintracht Frankfurt and 16 months as head coach of the German record champions FC Bayern. In the previous season he had won the championship and the DFB Cup with Bayern; a year earlier he made Eintracht Frankfurt the cup winner.
Kovac has a lot of work to do in the Principality. After 17th place in the 2018/19 season, AS Monaco also disappointed in the previous season, which had been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. The 2017 Champions League semi-finalist only finished ninth in Ligue 1. Kovac also doesn't have much preparation time: the season in France starts on August 23, Stade Reims is the first opponent for Monaco in the home stadium.
