Back in management after eight days - Ranieri handed Roma job

AS Roma president furious over VAR decision

The Guardian reports former manager Claudio Ranieri is expected to again take the reins of the club.

Ranieri succeeds Eusebio Di Francesco, who was sacked in the wake of Roma's Champions League exit at the hands of Porto this week.

But the noise around his future at the club has reached a crescendo after Roma were knocked out of the Champions League in the last 16 stage at the hands of FC Porto.

"I'm delighted to be coming back home", Ranieri said on Friday.

"When Roma calls you, you can't say no", said Ranieri after his arrival was made official.

Ranieri's first match in charge will be an Italian league game at home against Empoli on Monday.

Claudio Ranieri has been named the new head coach of Roma until the end of the season.

Pochettino had better Tottenham team two years ago, says Harry Redknapp
They started to play a little but more and then in the first action when we were able to connect we managed to score the goal. The striker is now Spurs' all-time leading scorer in Europe with 24 goals.

Roma are now fifth in Serie A, three points outside the top four.

The top four from Serie A qualify for next season's Champions League.

A native of Rome, Ranieri won a Premier League title in 2017 as manager of Leicester City and has an extensive coaching resume with clubs from all over the world including stints with Chelsea, Monaco, Atletico, Valencia, Juventus, Parma and Nantes.

Roma reportedly held talks with Sarri before the Carabao Cup final, which the Italian would go on to lose on penalties.

A semifinalist one season ago, Eusebio Di Francesco will reportedly be fired by i Lupi after coughing up a 2-1 first leg lead in Portugal on Thursday. "We have 12 games left and we need to win as many of them as possible".

Roma has announced that sporting director Monchi has left the club.

He then coached Nantes for a season before taking over at Fulham in November 2018, only to be sacked on February 28.
