Just a week after being sacked by Fulham, Claudio Ranieri could be set for another job.
That came following the news that Eusebio Di Francesco has been sacked as the manager of Roma, following their exit from The Champions League at the hands of Porto on Wednesday night. In fact, Di Francesco’s position had been looking shaky since the weekend, after his side went down 3 – 0 in the Rome derby to bitter local rivals Lazio, and the events in Portugal convinced the club’s board to bring down the curtain after 21 months in charge at the Stadio Olimpico.
Now according to Calciomercato they will turn to Ranieri to take charge until the end of the season whilst they decide on their next permanent appointment. The club is no stranger to the 67-year old Italian. Born in the city, he played briefly for them at the start of his career, and then went on to manage them between 2009 and 2011.
