Vincenzo Montella Is Appointed Roma Coach to Replace Ranieri

Feb. 21 (Bloomberg) -- Italian soccer team Roma named Vincenzo Montella as coach until the end of the season, replacing Claudio Ranieri who quit after yesterday’s 4-3 defeat at Genoa.

The club confirmed the appointment in an announcement through the Italian stock exchange.

Previously a youth coach at the club, ex-Italian national team striker Montella, 36, had stints as a player with teams including Empoli, Genoa and Roma. He also had a loan spell with London team Fulham in 2007.

Roma said it’s “certain that with his enthusiasm and dedication he’ll be able to help the squad with his quality, professionalism and experience.”

The team is in eighth place in Serie A after yesterday’s defeat, when Genoa rallied from 3-0 down.

Earlier today, the club said former Chelsea and Valencia coach Ranieri resigned and his contract was resolved by mutual consent.
