Monte Carlo, Monaco:

Italian Claudio Ranieri was on Wednesday unveiled as coach of fallen giants Monaco, who finished eighth in the French second division last season.

The 60-year-old former Chelsea coach signed a two-year deal, with an option on a third year, and takes over from Marco Simone, who left Monaco earlier this month.

Ranieri was sacked as Inter Milan coach in March after a year in charge there and previously also coached Napoli, Fiorentina, Juventus, Roma, Parma, Atletico Madrid and Valencia.

The Italian "is today considered one of the best coaches in European football and brings to Monaco all the richeness of his experience and all he has achieved in football", Monaco said in a statement.
