Monaco will have another foreign manager with a Red Bull-label in the coming season. The Austrian manager Adi Hütter has been appointed by AS Monaco, who gave him a contract for the coming two seasons.
He will be the fifth foreigner in a row for this position after Leonardo Jardim, Robert Moreno, Niko Kovac and Philippe Clement. The 53 year-old Hütter didn’t have a job during the last season after being sacked by Borussia Mönchengladbach.
But before that misadventure he was twice elected as the best manager of the Bundesliga while working at Eintracht Frankfurt, where he succeeded Niko Kovac in 2018. In the first season he reached the semifinals of the Europa League. He worked also in Austria and Switzerland and in both countries created teams that became national champions: RB Salzburg in 2015 and Young Boys in 2018.
He also won the Austrian Cup with RB Salzburg, having been a player for that club, then named Casino Salzburg, and played in the UEFA Cup final of 1994 versus Inter.
