Austrian Adi Hütter takes over as new coach of AS Monaco

AS Monaco has appointed Adi Hütter as its new coach. The Austrian, aged 53, has signed a two-season contract.

Adi Hütter takes over from Phillipe Clement, who was sacked on 4th June.

Last season, Monaco finished sixth in the French championship and did not qualify for European competition.

With a wealth of international experience acquired in Austria, Switzerland and Germany, Adi Hütter is now committed to AS Monaco until 30th June 2025.

After a career as a midfielder in Austria, where he played nearly 500 professional matches and wore the Austrian national jersey 14 times, Adi Hütter began his coaching career at the age of 37, accumulating 539 games on the bench since.

His career as a technician is punctuated with success. In Austria, with Red Bull Salzburg, he achieved the Cup-Championship double at the end of the 2014-2015 season. Subsequently, in Switzerland, with the Young Boys of Bern, he won the league title in the 2017-2018 season.

These successes led him to the Bundesliga where he coached Eintracht Frankfurt (2018-2021) as well as Borussia Mönchengladbach (2021-22).

In 2019 at Eintracht, Adi Hütter led his team to the Europa League semi-finals, and was voted coach of the year in Germany.

Hütter will lead his first practice on Wednesday at the ASM Performance Center.

“We are very happy to welcome Adi Hütter to AS Monaco,” said Thiago Scuro, Director of Football, in a press release. “In recent years, Adi has proven himself in different championships but also on the continental scene. These different experiences, added to his leadership and a profile marked by a lively, forward-looking style, correspond in all respects with what we expect in order to reach a new milestone with the first team.”
