Claudio Ranieri returns to England as the EPL-winning coach has been announced as Fulham’s new manager.
The former Leicester City boss makes a come back to the English top flight with hopes of rescuing the
relegation threatened club.
Hence, Claudio Ranieri steps in as the new Fulham manager, replacing the sacked Slavisa Jokanovic.
The Italian coach was appointed on a multi-year contract by chairman Shahid Khan on Wednesday, as the
Craven Cottage side look to move out the murky waters.
Therefore, “It is an honour to accept Mr. Khan’s invitation and opportunity to lead Fulham, a fantastic club with tradition and history,” Ranieri told the club’s website.
“The objective at Fulham should never be to merely survive in the Premier League.
Consequently, we must at all times be a difficult opponent and should expect to succeed.
And this Fulham squad has exceptional talent that is contrary to its position in the table.
Finally, I know this team is very capable of better performances, which we will work on straight away as we prepare
for Southampton at the Cottage.”
