Italian Claudio Ranieri has been appointed the new manager of Fulham, replacing Slavisa Jokanovic, the struggling Premier League club said on Wednesday.
Serb Jokanovic led Fulham into the Premier League via the playoffs last season but the London club currently sit at the bottom of the league with one win in 12 games.
Fulham chairman Shahid Khan said he had taken the decision reluctantly but felt a change was needed.
“I wasn’t anticipating having to make this announcement related to Slavisa and wish the circumstances were such that I didn’t have to.
“But our path this season has led me to make what I know is the correct decision, at the right time, for our players, the club and our supporters,” Khan said in a statement.
