Former Chelsea and Leicester City coach, Claudio Ranieri has been named Fulham’s new manager, replacing Slavisa Jokanovic, according to SkySports.
Jokanovic’s dismissal comes after Fulham could only manage one win from their opening 12 Premier League matches since their promotion from the Championship, leaving them rooted to the bottom of the table.
Ranieri’s first game in charge at Craven Cottage will be at home to fellow Premier League strugglers, Southampton on November 24.
In the space of three days in early December, Ranieri will face the two clubs he has previously managed in England, Chelsea and Leicester City, where he famously won the Premier League title in 2016.
In a statement, Ranieri, said: "It is an honour to accept Mr. Khan’s invitation and opportunity to lead Fulham, a fantastic club with tradition and history.
"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."
In total, Ranieri has managed 17 different sides, including Napoli, Juventus and Inter Milan in his native Italy, as well as Valencia and Atletico Madrid in Spain, and even a short, unsuccessful spell with the Greece national team.
Until leading Leicester to an unlikely title, Ranieri had an unwanted record of never winning a league title as a manager.
The 67-year-old finished second with Chelsea, Juventus, Roma and Monaco, but silenced his critics in bringing Leicester their first league title.
Ranieri is expected to bring a backroom staff of four or five assistants and coaches with him to Fulham.
