Former Roma boss Claudio Ranieri named new Watford manager

Former Roma manager Claudio Ranieri is back in the Premier League after being unveiled as the new manager of Watford this evening.

The English side announced the 69 year-old signed a two-year deal with the club to replace former manager Xisco, who was sacked this past weekend following a 1-0 loss to Leeds United.

“Watford FC is delighted to confirm the appointment of Claudio Ranieri as the club’s new Head Coach, on a two-year contract. The Italian arrives at Vicarage Road boasting a wealth of experience in charge of some of Europe’s biggest clubs, with Premier League, Coppa Italia and Copa del Rey titles among his managerial highlights,” wrote the club on their official website.

“Ranieri will be joined at Watford by Assistant Coaches Paolo Benetti and Carlo Cornacchia, as well as Fitness Coach Carlo Spignoli. His first match in charge of the Hornets will be at home to Liverpool on Saturday. Welcome to Watford, Claudio!”

Ranieri joins Watford after he opted not to renew with Sampdoria upon the conclusion of last season.
