Claudio to Fulham

Recommended Posts

There’s enough ability in that squad to stay up. They spent over £100m plus five loan players, and given the dross down there, I’d back Ranieri to keep them up.

The great man taking over at Fulham - Can he pull off another miracle?

No chance!

 

Our miracle had more to it than just Ranieri. He helped for sure..but inherited a team that was on the up after the great escape..and we had the best owners, and, and, and..(stating the obvious, I know)

 

Good luck to Claudio but it won't happen at Fulham.

Interesting, I don't think he's the right manager for a relegation battle, but we'll see... wish we'd already played them though, always the risk of a new manager bounce

Thanks Rumble  - Yep that's all I meant.

Yeah, but... they're three points off getting out of the relegation zone. That's hardly a miracle achievement??

Fulham have sacked manager Slavisa Jokanovic and replaced him with Claudio Ranieri, who guided Leicester to the Premier League title in 2016.

Jokanovic makes way with the Cottagers sitting bottom of the Premier League table with five points from 12 matches.

Italian Ranieri, 67, has been given a "multi-year" contract by the Londoners.

"Making a change without having the right answer or succession plan was not an option," said Fulham chairman Shahid Khan.

"So having someone of Claudio's calibre ready to accept our challenge was comforting but, most of all, essential.

"Claudio is risk-free and ready-made for the Premier League, and particularly so for what we need at this moment at Fulham.

"His recent body of work with Leicester City is literally legendary, and then you look at Claudio's experience with Chelsea and big clubs throughout Europe, and it's pretty evident we are welcoming an extraordinary football man to Fulham Football Club."

Khan said he and his son Tony Khan, the club's vice chairman and director of football operations, spoke with a number of potential candidates over the past week.

"It is an honour to accept Mr Khan's invitation and opportunity to lead Fulham, a fantastic club with tradition and history," said Ranieri, who spent last season in charge of French club Nantes.

"The objective at Fulham should never be to merely survive in the Premier League. We must at all times be a difficult opponent and should expect to succeed.

"This Fulham squad has exceptional talent that is contrary to its position in the table."

Ranieri's first game in charge will see Fulham host Southampton at Craven Cottage on Saturday, 24 November.

"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," he added.
