Claudio Ranieri Appointed New Coach of Greece

Claudio RanieriFormer Chelsea manager Claudio Ranieri has been appointed new coach of the Greek national football team after agreeing on a two-year deal.
The 62-year-old Italian takes over from Fernando Santos, whose contract expired after the 2014 World Cup.
The Portuguese coach guided Greece to the group of 16 in Brazil and Ranieri will now focus on qualification for the Euro 2016.
The Greek Football Federation said “The Italian coach is expected to lead our group to new successes with Euro 2016 on the horizon.”
Ranieri has managed 14 different clubs – including Juventus, Roma and Inter Milan – but is yet to test himself on the international stage.
During his four years at Chelsea, he improved the team’s Premier League standing every year and reached the Champions League semi-finals in 2004.
He was let go a year after Roman Abramovich took over the club and was replaced by Jose Mourinho.
In his last post, Ranieri led Monaco to a Ligue 1 promotion and finished second on their return to the top league in the 2013-14 season, before leaving the club.
