Tavecchio not ruling out Ranieri to replace Conte

Italian Football Federation (FIGC) president Carlo Tavecchio has not ruled out approaching Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri to replace Antonio Conte as Italy boss after Euro 2016.

Ranieri’s stock has risen dramatically this season as he has guided Leicester towards a maiden Premier League title – the Foxes currently seven points clear with six games to go.

The 64-year-old replaced Nigel Pearson at the King Power Stadium in July, Ranieri given a chance to rebuild his reputation after a disastrous spell in charge of Greece that saw them lose to the Faroe Islands.

He has grabbed that opportunity with both hands and his achievements could see the FIGC make a move once Conte leaves for Chelsea.

“Ranieri? We’ll pause and reflect thoughtfully before finding a solution,” Tavecchio told reporters as Ranieri was awarded the Bearzot Prize for the most successful Italian coach this season.

“We have plenty of time [to decide Conte’s replacement].

“In 2014 we gave a two-year contract to Conte and we knew it was going to expire after the Euros.

“Conte hasn’t renewed and we’ve taken note. The contract was fulfilled, we are happy with what he did.”
