Ranieri Too Old for Ligue 1
Ranieri to Nantes delayed… because he’s too old!
Claudio Ranieri is set to become the new manager of Nante, though the confirmation has been delayed due to the Italian coach’s age.
The former Leicester City boss, who won the Premier League title in miraculous circumstances in 2015-16, has been unemployed since February of this year.
However, he is now set to return to management in France, though Nantes must await the confirmation of the deal from the FFF.
The governing body of Ligue 1 does not allow the recruitment of a manager over the age of 65, and Ranieri turned 65 in October of 2016.
