Austrian Adi Hutter has been appointed coach of French club Monaco on a two-year contract, the Ligue 1 club announced Tuesday.
Hutter had been without a club since leaving Bundesliga side Borussia Moenchengladbach after just one season in 2021-22 when the team finished a modest tenth.
At Monaco he replaces Belgian Philippe Clement who stayed a season and a half at the Principality outfit which failed to qualify for a European competition.
The 53-year-old Hutter began his career at home with RB Salzburg, followed by successful spells with Swiss side Young Boys of Bern and Germany’s Eintracht Frankfurt.
He achieved the Austrian Cup-Championship double in 2015 with Salzburg, and the Swiss league title in 2018 with Young Boys, and guided Frankfurt to the Europa League semi-final in 2019.
A former international midfielder, Hutter was capped 14 times for Austria.
