Fulham have sacked their manager Claudio Ranieri just after 106 days of appointing the former Leicester City gaffer as boss.
The 67-year-old Italian football manager was fired at Fulham due to poor performances this season which left the club at the bottom of the table in the Premier League.
It was November 2018 that Fulham actually hired Claudio Ranieri on a rescue mission after the sack of Slavisa Jokanovic, but he was able to win just three games out of 16 in charge of the club.
“Claudio walked into a difficult situation, inheriting a side that gained only one point in its prior eight matches, and he provided an immediate boost by leading our club to nine points in his first eight matches as manager.
“Though we were unable to maintain that pace thereafter, I am grateful for his effort. Claudio leaves Fulham as our friend and he will undoubtedly experience success again soon.
“Scott’s immediate assignment is merely to help us stabilize, grow and rediscover ourselves as a football club.
“If Scott can answer that challenge, and our players respond to the opportunity, perhaps victories will follow in the months ahead,” Fulham chairman Shahid Khan explained.
Meanwhile, this will be the second time that Claudio Ranieri will be fired in the space of two years as it will be recalled how he was sacked at Leicester City despite winning the EPL title.
Earlier, Continentour.com.ng had reported how Premier League club Fulham sacked manager Slavisa Jokanovic and hire former Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri as his replacement.
The Cottagers have been very poor since they gained promotion to the English topflight this season.
