French giants AS Monaco have sacked Spanish coach Roberto Moreno, L’Equipe reports. The club has finished in ninth place in the Ligue 1 and that has been the main reason for the club to sack the 42-year-old. Moreno was appointed in December 2019, replacing Portuguese coach Leonardo Jardim.

Monaco are yet to confirm the departure of Moreno, but it is expected to be confirmed at any moment. The report from L’Equipe states that a desire to change the DNA of the club, poor man management and a lack of experience in managing a squad are the main reasons for the club to sack Moreno.

The report also states that Monaco have already found a replacement for Moreno, with former Bayern Munich manager Niko Kovac being lined-up as the hot favourite to land the job at Monaco. Kovac has been without a job after he was sacked by Bayern in November 2019.
