Claudio Ranieri says his previous achievements have not dampened his desire to enjoy another successful spell at new club Fulham.
The Cottagers are the 17th different team the Italian has taken charge of in his illustrious career and he returns to England from a spell managing French team Nantes with expectations high after his unlikely success with Leicester City.

The 67-year-old guided the Foxes to the Premier League title in 2015/16 but has a very different job on his hands this time with Fulham currently rooted to the foot of the table after 12 matches.
Ranieri says he is looking forward to the challenge of trying to keep the west London outfit in the top flight and claims that despite a long managerial career that has taken him across Europe, his enthusiasm for football is as high as ever. “I felt I needed to come back to England,” Ranieri told fulhamfctv.
“I went abroad last season to finish my story, but my feeling for English football is so strong that I felt I had to come back. “When I met Mr Khan, [I saw] he is an ambitious man and a good Chairman, so I want to give him what he desires.
“I hope we can be safe this season and then from there we follow the way of our Chairman and his son to try and grow up and become stronger. “What I’ve achieved is in the past. I always look forward and want more, I hope to do a very good job.”
