Fulham Sack Ranieri, Appoint Parker As Caretaker Manager

Fulham Sack Ranieri,  Appoint Parker As Caretaker Manager

Claudio Ranieri has parted ways with Fulham after less than four months in charge.

Scott Parker has been placed in charge as caretaker manager until the end of the season.

Confirming the departure Fulham chairman Shahid Khan said in a statement: “Following our discussion this afternoon, Claudio Ranieri agreed to my decision that a change was in the best interests of everyone.

“No surprise to me, Claudio was a perfect gentleman, as always.

“Claudio’s tenure at Fulham didn’t produce the outcome we anticipated and needed when I appointed him as manager in November, but be assured he is not solely to blame for the position we are in today.”

The Italian replaced Slavisa Jokanovic at Craven Cottage in November but has managed just three wins in 17 matches since taking over.

Following his departure, Ranieri told Fulham’s official website: “I am obviously disappointed with the recent results and that we could not build on the good start we made following my appointment.

“Finally, I would like to thank the club, the players and the fans for the support they have given me during my time at the club.”

Wednesday’s 2-0 defeat to Southampton left the club 10 points from safety in the Premier League, with 10 matches to play.

Chants of ‘you don’t know what you’re doing’ greeted Ranieri’s second-half substitutions at St Mary’s, while a banner containing the words ‘Risk free? Are you watching Tony Khan?’ was unfurled in reference to comments made by the club’s vice-chairman following Ranieri’s appointment.

Parker’s first game in charge will come against his former club Chelsea on Sunday, before fixtures against Leicester, Liverpool and Manchester City.

  • Sacking Claudio Ranieri is not the solution to Fulham’s problems. They must go relegation. The best they will reach is 18th position. They will still get up to £80,000,000(Eighty Million pounds). Weed out fast many lazy players and bring in some other good players and fight to come back. Only a miracle can save Fulham fc. Over to you Mr Shahid Khan.

    Sacking a coach after only 4 months? What fantasy expectations did Khan have when he hired Ranieri? Ranieri did what he could. Most notably, he somehow convinced Babel to join Fulham, and many fans believed that the strike partnership of Babel and Mitrovic could somehow save the club. They have not played badly, and seem to be improving with every game. Now the little progress that has been made thus far is out the window, and the club is back to square one. Instead of shooting from the hip with his decision making, Khan would be well advised to be realistic with his expectations, and give people he hires adequate time and support to do their jobs!
