He has been unemployed since February, when Leicester City’s owner decided it was time for him to do something to ‘wake’ his team ‘up’, and it looks like he has had enough rest, maybe too much, and cannot wait to start his new project.
I hope so. I’m very stimulated to make another great season
Claudio Ranieri answered a reporter when asked if he will be working next season. As for the rumours that he has received an offer from Crystal Palace, the Italian called them just that, ‘rumours’.
It is only rumours. I feel that I could be a European coach. Italy, Spain, France, England for me is OK
the former Leicester City manager said. Watford is another club reported to have approached him, since Walter Mazzarri won’t be continuing at the club.
As for several managers losing their job in England, Ranieri didn’t seem that surprised, saying that
I think in Italy we are used to this, every three or four matches changing the coach! All the world is the same.
The Italian has said that he will pick his next team very carefully, and only if he feels that he is satisfied with the potential, the project, the vision the owners will have for the club.
