Can you name all 19 teams that Claudio Ranieri has managed?
Claudio Ranieri has taken charge of 19 different teams during a long and distinguished managerial career that’s spanned over two decades.
We’ve set you the ridiculously difficult challenge of trying to name every single team – national or club – that Ranieri has taken charge of. You’ve got 15 minutes. No prizes for getting the side he unforgettably led to the Premier League title in 2016.
The teams are listed in chronological order, with just the years he was at each one as your clue.
“Why not [this club]?” the 70-year-old Italian said after his last Premier League appointment in October 2021.
“I feel good. Fortunately, I feel good. When I think about football, life is good. Football is my life.
“I am very happy to play in one of the best leagues in the world. I am an ambitious man and I hope to bring [this club] to be safe at the end of the season and to improve.”
Unfortunately, he lasted just 14 games and the club ultimately suffered relegation. But earlier this year Ranieri to one of his old Italian haunts, proving there’s life in this old dog yet by leading them to promotion from Serie B.
We reckon 100% is borderline impossible without cheating and looking at Wikipedia, while even naming Ranieri’s 13 jobs since 2000 is a pretty formidable challenge. In total, there are 19 different clubs or national teams across 23 stints.
If this gives you a taste for another quiz, why not try name every team to be relegated from the Premier League?
