Serie A: Sampdoria name Claudio Ranieri as manager
Former Chelsea and Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri has been appointed as Italian side Sampdoria’s manager.
Ranieri replaces Eusebio di Francesco, who was sacked on Monday with the club bottom of Serie A after six defeats in seven matches.
The 67-year-old Italian also succeeded Di Francesco at Roma in March on a contract until the end of last season.
It is his 20th managerial appointment and a ninth spell as a boss in Italy’s top flight.
