Former Chelsea Boss Claudio Ranieri hired as Sampdoria Manager
Former Chelsea and Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri has returned to management at Serie A side Sampdoria.
The experienced tactician has agreed a deal with the Genoa-based club through to 2021.
He steps into a void created by the dismissal of Eusebio Di Francesco.
It was decided that change was required in the dugout following a dismal start to the 2019-20 campaign.
Sampdoria currently sit bottom of the Italian top-flight with just three points.
Di Francesco paid the price for those failings with his job after overseeing a run of six defeats in seven games.
Ranieri will now be charged with the task of delivering a reversal in fortune.
A statement on Sampdoria’s official website read: “President Massimo Ferrero and UC Sampdoria welcome Claudio Ranieri, who has joined the club as manager responsible for the first team until 30 June 2021.
“The president is looking for the technician, his staff and the team to do a good job based on commitment and passion.”
The 67-year-old is a seasoned campaigner who has been coaching since 1987, with over 30 years spent working all over the world.
