Fulham sack Ranieri and appoint Scott Parker as caretaker
Claudio Ranieri has been sacked by Fulham FC after four months in charge and the Cottagers have appointed Scott Parker as a caretaker manager.
Claudio Ranieri speaking to the club website revealed he was disappointed with the recent results:
“I am obviously disappointed with the recent results and that we could not build on the good start we made following my appointment.
“Finally, I would like to thank the Club, the players and the fans for the support they have given me during my time at the Club.”
The relegation-threatened club owner Shahid Khan revealed Scott Parker had been appointed to stabilize the club with 10 games of the season left.
“I am asking Scott Parker to serve as our Caretaker Manager. Scott’s immediate assignment is merely to help us stabilize, grow and rediscover ourselves as a football club.
“If Scott can answer that challenge, and our players respond to the opportunity, perhaps victories will follow in the months ahead.
