Claudio Ranieri – what could he bring to Leeds United

Former Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri has emerged as the front runner to replace Garry Monk as manager of Leeds United.

Monk resigned yesterday (May 26), meaning that Leeds United were once again on the search for a new manager.

And today, the72 reported that Claudio Ranieri had been approached by Andrea Radrizzani over the vacant role.

The Italian manager has earned a lot of respect after leading Leicester City to a Premier League title in 2015/16, but what else has Ranieri accomplished in his career?

We take a look at his managerial history:

Claudio Ranieri began his career at Italian side Vigor Lamezia. They currently play in Serie D in Italy. They were an amateur side, who provided Ranieri with the lift up to bigger and better things.

His first major role was at Cagliari, yet another Italian club. He took charge of them in 1988. This is where the Italian boss really began to make his name. He carried Cagliari from Serie C one to Serie A (the top flight), in just two seasons. He also won the Coppa Italia Serie C during his time at the club.

In 1991, Ranieri moved to Italian giants Napoli. In his first season, he finished fourth in the top flight in Italy, helping them to qualify for the UEFA Cup. However, he was sacked in his second season after they were eliminated from the UEFA Cup in the second round.

Claudio Ranieri decided to remain in Italy for his next job, joining Fiorientina in 1994. In his first season, he led them to promotion to the top flight. He enjoyed further success in the top flight with the club, winning the Coppa Italia and Suppercoppa Italiana in 1996.
