La Liga: Ranieri appointed Fulham coach, Solari named permanent Real Madrid coach

Former Leicester City manager, Claudio Ranieri, has been appointed as the new coach of Fulham. Ranieri’s appointment came after Fulham sacked Slavisa Jokanovic on Wednesday.

The Italian guided Leicester City to win their first ever Premier League title in 2016.

“It is an honour to accept Mr. Khan’s invitation and opportunity to lead Fulham, a fantastic club with tradition and history,” Ranieri told Fulham’s official website.

“The objective at Fulham should never be to merely survive in the Premier League.

“We must at all times be a difficult opponent and should expect to succeed.

“This Fulham squad has exceptional talent that is contrary to its position in the table.

“I know this team is very capable of better performances, which we will work on straight away as we prepare for Southampton at the Cottage.”

Ranieri will hope to guide Fulham to victory when they tackle Southampton on November 24 in the Premier League.

In Spanish Laliga, Real Madrid have announced the appointment of their team B coach, Santiago Solari on a permanent basis.

The club made the announcement in a short statement posted on their website, with Solari handed a three-year contract.

“The board of directors of Real Madrid C.F., which met today, 13 November 2018, has agreed to appoint Santiago Solari as first-team coach until 30 June 2021,” the statement read.

Solari, 42, has been interim coach of the team since the sacking of former coach, Julen Lopetegui, at the end of October.

He won all four matches during his two-week interim tenure.

The 13-time UCL champions and its current defending champion are mandated by Spanish football laws to appoint a permanent coach as no interim coach can spend more than two weeks on the bench, a period which ended on Monday for Solari.

The appointment of Solari from the Castilla team of Real is similar to that made by Zinedine Zidane who went on to win three UCL crown on the bounce and a League title in two and half years.
