Claudio Ranieri is set to be sacked by Fulham, with the club's directors and supporters having lost confidence in him.

His replacement Claudio Ranieri is also facing the sack now after failing to make an impact on their battle for survival taking just 12 points from 16 games to leave Fulham second from bottom.

Ranieri has only secured three wins since returning to the Premier League and has failed to bring the magic that saw him win the title with Leicester City.

The football club chairman, Shahid Khan, however, named Scott Parker as Caretaker Manager, replacing Claudio Ranieri.

"Claudio walked into a hard situation, inheriting a side that gained only one point in its prior eight matches, and he provided an immediate boost by leading our club to nine points in his first eight matches as manager".
