BREAKING! Fulham appoint Claudio Ranieri as new manager after sacking Slavisa Jokanovic

English Premier League side Fulham have appointed former Chelsea and Leicester City Boss Claudio Ranieri as manager after parting ways with Slavisa Jokanovic.

Jokanovic was given his marching orders on Wednesday with the club bottom of the Premier League having won only one of their 12 league matches in which they have shipped 31 goals.

 


The Serb, 50, had been in charge at Craven Cottage since 2015 and last season guided them to the top-tier via the Championship play-off.

 

Fulham’s return to the top flight has proved a chastening experience thus far though, with Sunday’s 2-0 defeat at Liverpool their sixth league defeat in a row.

 

Ranieri, 67, guided unheralded Leicester City to the Premier League title in 2016, has been out of work since leaving French club Nantes in the summer.

 

The club said in a statement the former Chelsea, Juventus and Inter Milan manager had been given a “multi-year” contract.
