Nantes receives permission to hire Claudio Ranieri

Nantes receives permission to hire Claudio Ranieri

Claudio Ranieri's appointment was held up by French league (LFP) rules that prohibit the appointment of any manager above the age of 65.

"Ranieri may be on the shortlist", Kita told CNews.

Ranieri has reportedly agreed a two-year contract with Nantes.

"The fact he will only be answerable to me, that there is no intermediary between us, seemed to reassure him".

Former Toronto FC head coach Paul Mariner shares his thoughts on where Claudio Ranieri will manage next.

Ranieri, who guided Leicester to the English Premier League title in 2016 but was sacked nine months later, will replace Sergio Conceicao.

But he was sacked in February with the club battling relegation after a run of five league losses in a row.

Leicester won 54% of their PL games under Craig Shakespeare last season (7/13), compared to just 20% under Ranieri (5/25).

He also has experience of French domestic football, having overseen Monaco's promotion to Ligue 1 in 2012-13 before guiding them to second place behind Paris Saint-Germain the following season.

The much-travelled Ranieri's managerial career spans three decades and has included all the major clubs in Italy except AC Milan.

The former Inter, Juventus and Roma Coach has had a deal with the French side since Sunday, but it emerged last night he'd need special dispensation to take over.
