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 latest appointment, midway through last season.
“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. It remains to be seen whether he has one last job in to make it up to a nice round 20.
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 21 stints. Our score to beat from the Planet Football office is 15/21.
If this gives you a taste for another quiz, why not try name every team to be relegated from the Premier League?
