Claudio Ranieri Takes Over As Coach At Nantes

Ranieri, 65, was believed to have taken over at the Ligue 1 club earlier this week, which ended speculation of the former Leicester boss joining Palace.

Ranieri, 65, won the 2015/2016 Premier League title with Leicester City before getting sacked in the middle of the following season due to poor results.

"We are almost there, even if it's not yet official".

So that's some fairly big-ish names who will be coaching in Ligue 1 next season, with Ranieri, Unai Emery, Marcelo Bielsa, Leonardo Jardim and Rudi Garcia all leading various teams into the fray. I haven't signed yet, but there is an agreement with the president. "Plus if it's Domenech... he has always been a bit freaky".

Among the club's most talented players are homegrown midfield duo Valentin Rongier and Amine Harit and Argentinian striker Emiliano Sala, who top-scored last season with 12 Ligue 1 goals.

"The fact the club climbed off the bottom to finish seventh proves they have the talent and the work ethic here".

Nantes allowed former Portuguese coach Sergio Conceicao to return to his homeland and take over the reins at Porto two weeks ago and moved swiftly to find a replacement.
