Sampdoria turns to Ranieri

Former AS Roma boss Claudio Ranieri has been appointed coach of Serie A struggler Sampdoria, the club confirmed on Saturday. Ranieri, who memorably guided outsider Leicester City to the 2016 English Premier League title, takes over from Eusebio di Francesco, who was sacked after a poor start to the season. The 67-year-old Ranieri, 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 career and had previously coached, to a sixth-place finish, missing out on UEFA Champions League football. The Genoese club has just one win in seven games and is bottom of the table.
