Ranieri appointed Nantes coach

Ranieri appointed Nantes coach

Crystal Palace have allegedly tried to scupper former Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri's move to Nantes by offering him last minute terms to take up the hotseat at Selhurst Park.

Only recently Palace chairman Steve Parish insisted they needed someone who would bring stability and longevity to the football club, which would make for interesting reading if they somehow managed to steal 65-year-old Ranieri.

Nantes confirmed that he had signed a two-year contract in what the club described as a "nice coup by the Nantes directors".

"FC Nantes is pleased to announce the arrival of Claudio Ranieri at the head of his professional group", read a statement on the club's official website.

The Italian coach will reportedly sign a two-year deal.

Ranieri will be forever remembered as the man who completed the impossible as he guided Leicester City to the Premier League title in the 2015/16 season, but has also had successful stints with Juventus, Fiorentina, Valencia and Chelsea.

Ranieri was no newcomer to the French league.

"I was struck by the squad, as they were bottom of the table halfway through the season, then thanks to Conceicao's work they finished seventh. Plus if it's Domenech... he has always been a bit freaky".

Nantes are one of France's most successful clubs having won eight Ligue 1 titles during their history, although the last of those came back in 2001.
