Claudio Ranieri Sacked By Fulham Following 4th Straight Loss

Claudio Ranieri

English clubs were known for their patience and long tenures, and if you don't take our word for it, just ask any Arsenal fan about Arsene Wenger or Manchester United fan about Sir Alex Ferguson.

Nonetheless, it looks like that trend is finally coming to an end, with teams urged to win right away constantly sacking their bosses without any kind of hesitation.

This time, the one that was kicked out of his team was Claudio Ranieri, even though he had only been in charge of Fulham for a little over 3 months.

With Fulham once again fighting to avoid relegation, the team decided to part ways with the Italian veteran following 4 straight losses.

"Following our discussion this afternoon, Claudio Ranieri agreed to my decision that a change was in the best interest of everyone. Claudio’s tenure at Fulham didn’t produce the outcome we anticipated and needed when I appointed him as Manager in November, but be assured he is not solely to blame for the position we are in today," said the team on an official statement.

The team hoped Ranieri could work his magic and replace Slaviša Jokanović to try and help them stay put at England's top-tier tournament, but he was only able to pick up 12 out of 48 possible points during his 3-month tenure.

Now, Scott Parker is set to take charge as interim boss while the club figures out the best move for their future. As for Fulham, they're currently sitting at the 19th spot of the Premier League table.
