Former Notts County manager Ricardo Moniz has a new job


Former Notts County boss Ricardo Moniz has been appointed as the manager of Danish Superliga side, Randers FC.

The Dutch manager, sacked by the Magpies in December 2015, takes over with Randers bottom of the table.

They have amassed just seven points in 11 games so far this season, winning just once.

Moniz, who succeeds Ólafur Kristjánsson, says he is relishing the challenge of guiding Randers to better times.

“I love football and it is a great honour to be in Randers FC,” he said.

“If you had told me a week ago that I would stand here today, I would not have believed you, but this is football.

“It is a big challenge to be here in Randers.”

Moniz does have some knowledge of Randers, who surprisingly beat Hamburger SV 1-0 in a UEFA Europa League qualifier back in 2009.

Moniz was on the German side’s staff at the time but they overcame the first leg defeat to secure a 4-1 aggregate victory.

“I know Randers FC back from 2009 when I was in Hamburger SV where they defeated us at our own stadium,” said Moniz.

“At that time I was impressed, and since then I have followed them because of the personal experience.

“I have not followed the Danish league, only the national team, because you do not expect that you will suddenly be here.

“Now my staff and my assistant have to brush up on the Danish league as soon as possible.”

Moniz’s appointment at Randers means it is his second job since leaving Notts in 2015.

After his experience at Meadow Lane, he joined Dutch side FC Eindhoven, but he left the club at the end of the 2016-17 season.
