” 1 Claudio Ranieri is the new boss of Nantes Former Leicester and Chelsea boss Claudio Ranieri is to take over at FC Nantes – after Crystal Palace failed to make him an offer. The Italian has been out of work since being sacked by Leicester in February despite incredibly leading them to the Premier League title just nine months earlier.
But the 65-year-old looks set for new employment with Nantes, who are ready to announce his arrival, according to L’Equipe. Ranieri has been linked with the vacant job with the Ligue 1 club for some time and reports suggest the reason for the hold up was Crystal Palace. It has been claimed that the manager would have been keen to take over at Selhurst Park, where the hotseat is vacant after Sam Allardyce walked out on the club.
But with no formal offer forthcoming, Ranieri has now decided to give Nantes the nod. ” ” Who is the greatest right now? Diego Simeone’s tactical brilliance saw Atletico Madrid knock holders Barcelona out of the elite European competition, further fuelling debate over whether there is a better coach than the Argentine right now.
Pep Guardiola, largely for his work at Barcelona, has often been regarded the best in the business, but is he now behind his former La Liga rival? We’ve taken a look at five men who could be considered the top coaches in world football – check them out by viewing the slideshow above and cast your vote below.1xbet.footballresultstoday.org/
5 1. Diego Simeone (Atletico Madrid) – check out four other coaches who rival the Atleti boss as the best in the world by clicking the arrow above – Atleti beat Barcelona 3-2 on aggregate in their Champions League quarter-final, and despite his players ultimately sealing the victory, Simeone is the man who has been praised. Under his guidance, Atletico have lifted one Europa League, one Super Cup, one La Liga, one Copa del Rey and one Spanish Super Cup.
Simeone has proved a nuisance to rivals Barca and Real Madrid, with their La Liga triumph in the 2013/14 season one of the most unforgettable. 5 2. Pep Guardiola (Bayern Munich) – Guardiola instantly led Barca to dominance after being appointed in 2008, lifting the Liga title in his debut campaign. The Spaniard went on to guide the Catalan giants to 13 more trophies, becoming the most successful coach in the club?s history.
Since taking over at Bayern Munich, his success has been similar ? sealing consecutive Bundesliga titles along with three cup triumphs. Where Simeone has the edge is that Guardiola is yet to take on a team without a plethora of world class players. Manchester City will be his most challenging test yet.
5 3. Luis Enrique (Barcelona) – Enrique enjoyed stunning success in his debut season in charge of Barcelona, claiming the Liga title, Copa del Rey and the Champions League, before going on to win the Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup. Many will argue the Spaniard has the fortune of having arguably the greatest attacking trio in history at his disposal, but his work should not be undermined.
He was named Coach of the Year at the FIFA Ballon d?Or gala at the beginning of the year. 5 4. Carlo Ancelotti (confirmed Bayern Munich coach from the summer) – Ancelotti often hits the ground running at his new clubs and is the most successful manager in Champions League history, having won the trophy three times (twice with AC Milan and once with Real Madrid). The Italian?s biggest downfall has been the lack of consistency.
While his trophy cabinet is full, he has struggled to sustain success, having failed to last more than two seasons at his previous three clubs (Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid). He will take over from Pep Guardiola at Bayern Munich in the summer. 5 5. Antonio Conte (Italy and confirmed Chelsea coach from the summer) – Described as a ?tactician?, the Italian is one of the boldest coaches, renowned for his 3-5-2 formation with Italy.
Prior to taking over his country?s national team, the 46-year-old enjoyed much success at Juventus. Juve sealed three successive Serie A titles, along with the Coppa Italia and two Italian Super Cups. Chelsea recently confirmed Conte will be Jose Mourinho?s permanent successor, taking over after the 2016 European Championship finals, and it?ll be interesting to see how he adapts to the Premier League. “
