Sampdoria set to name Claudio Ranieri as the new boss

Serie A side Sampdoria could name former English Premier League title-winning manager Claudio Ranieri as their new boss.

According to Sky Italia, the announcement is expected to be done over the weekend with this being the second time Ranieri will be replacing Eusebio Di Francesco in seven months after succeeding him at Roma in March.

The former Leicester and Chelsea boss worked in the Italian capital for the final three months of last season after his sacking as Fulham manager in February.

Two Wins

Di Francesco won just two of his eight matches in charge of Sampdoria this season before he was dismissed on Wednesday.

It will be Ranieri's 20th job in football management across 16 clubs (nine from Italy) and one spell as national team boss for Greece.

Ranieri's finest moment in management came with Leicester when he led them to an unlikely Premier League success in 2015/16.
