The former striker will take his first steps into management at the club where he began his professional career and has signed a three-year contract.

“In the first place, I thank AS Monaco for giving me the opportunity to coach the team of this club which is so special to me.

“I am very happy to come back to AS Monaco and extremely determined to meet the challenges ahead.

“I can not wait to meet the players to start working together,” he said.
