Claudio Ranieri backed Maurizio Sarri to succeed at Chelsea if he is chosen to replace Antonio Conte as head coach this summer.
Ranieri managed Chelsea from 2000 to 2004 before being sacked by Abramovich to make way for Jose Mourinho, who left FC Porto after the Champions League success to join the East London club.
Former Leicester title winning manager backed Maurizio Sarri to succeed at Chelsea if he is chosen to replace Antonio Conte as head coach this summer.
But the Italian has admitted that managing at Stamford Bridge is not for everyone. Especially by seeing how strict the Chelsea owner is with the immediate impact demands.
“Should he go to Chelsea, he’d do well there too. He’s done well at every level, even at Empoli when people were saying he wasn’t ready yet.
“Now he’s well-known all over Europe, and I’m convinced he can bring his football and his philosophy anywhere.”
