Breaking: Ex-Leicester title winning coach Ranieri face Fulham axe, 2 months after poor EPL run


Claudio Ranieri will be sacked by Fulham today with the club heading towards relegation from the Premier League.

Ranieri has been summoned for talks this morning with club bosses and is expected to be shown the door after less than four months in charge.

The 67-year-old has won just three matches since taking over from Slavisa Jokanovic in December and being given the responsibility of ensuring top flight survival.

Instead, the Fulham have got worse and the 2-0 defeat to relegation rivals Southampton last night appears to have been the final straw for owner Shahid Khan.

That was the London club’s tenth defeat under Ranieri in 16 matches, and they now find themselves staring Championship football in the face ten points adrift of safety.

Their only win in 2019 came when they beat Brighton 4-2 at Craven Cottage at the end of January.

But that match was the only time the side has collected any points in the last eight league matches – a horror run of results which has left Ranieri exposed.

With so just over two months left of the season, and with relegation now almost a formality, the club are likely to resist rushing in to make a new permanent appointment.

Instead they could turn to coach Scott Parker to take over the role on a caretaker basis until the end of the season
