Claudio Ranieri Axed As Fulham Coach

Claudio Ranieri has been asked to leave the club just after only 16 Premier League games in charge of Fulham with Scott Parker taking over as caretaker manager.

Parker handed the role by Shahid Khan, the Fulham owner and chairman. Parker, 38, ended his playing career at Craven Cottage two years ago and, after a brief spell as a club ambassador and youth coach at Tottenham Hotspur, returned to west London as first-team coach under Slavisa Jokanovic, who was sacked in November.

Claudio Ranieri will hold talks with Fulham on Thursday regarding his future, Sky Sports News understands.

The Cottagers slipped further into relegation trouble on Wednesday night, following an away defeat to fellow strugglers Southampton.

A banner containing the words 'Risk free? Are you watching Tony Khan?' was unfurled in reference to comments made by the club's vice-chairman following Ranieri's appointment.

Ranieri arrived at Craven Cottage to replace Slavisa Jokanovic in November but has managed just three wins in 17 matches since taking over.

Fulham return to Premier League action on Sunday, March 3, when they host Maurizio Sarri's Chelsea at Craven Cottage.

An away trip to Leicester City soon follows, before a meeting with current league leaders Liverpool at home on March 17 and Manchester City two weeks later.
