Claudio Ranieri’s first game in charge of Sampdoria will be against Roma – the previous club he coached – on October 20.
Sampdoria have appointed Claudio Ranieri as head coach on a contract until June 2021.
Ranieri guided Roma to sixth in Serie A last season after three months in charge and his first game as Samp boss comes against the Giallorossi on October 20.
The 67-year-old takes charge of a team rooted to the foot of the table after seven matches, with the Blucerchiati having won one and lost six.
That run of form this week resulted in the dismissal of Eusebio Di Francesco, who Ranieri also replaced at Roma.
