Sampdoria Appoints Claudio Ranieri as its new manager


Former Roma and Leicester City manager, Claudio Ranieri has been appointed coach of Serie A side Sampdoria, the club confirmed on Saturday.

The 67-year-old manager,  who took over as coach at Roma last March after di Francesco was sacked, has signed a contract until June 2021.

Ranieri guided the Roman outfit, who he played for during his football career and had previously coached, to a sixth-place finish, missing out on Champions League football.

Sampdoria finished ninth last season, with Di Francesco taking over after Marco Giampaolo left for AC Milan.
