Ranieri named new Monaco coach

30 May 2012 11:20

French Ligue 2 club Monaco have confirmed former Chelsea boss Claudio Ranieri as their new coach.

The 60-year-old, who had also been linked with the vacant managerial positions at West Brom and Fiorentina, has signed a two-year contract with the option for a third.

A statement on the club's official website said: "AS Monaco are delighted to announce the appointment of Claudio Ranieri as coach.

"This appointment follows a search and a rigorous selection process during which Claudio Ranieri has clearly established itself as the best candidate for the position.

"He is now considered one of the best coaches in European football and brings to AS Monaco all the richness of his experience and achievements in football."

Ranieri replaces Marco Simone, who was dismissed at the end of last season, despite guiding the club to a credible eighth-placed finish in the French second-tier, with the team bottom of the table upon his arrival last September.

The appointment marks a return to coaching for the Italian, who had previously endured a disastrous spell in charge of Inter Milan last term.

He was sacked in March after a dismal run of results left the club languishing in mid-table.
