Monaco confirm Ranieri's departure

"I respect the man but I felt we needed a new dynamic," said AS Monaco FC vice-president Vadim Vasiliev, announcing the club had parted company with coach Claudio Ranieri.

AS Monaco FC have announced that Claudio Ranieri will not be in charge of the club next season despite two successful years in the principality.

The 62-year-old Italian guided Monaco back to Ligue 1 in his first campaign at the helm before leading the newly promoted side to a runners-up finish this term, bringing the 2004 finalists back into the UEFA Champions League. "I want to thank Claudio, who has done a superb job," explained Monaco's vice-president Vadim Vasiliev. "I respect the man, but I felt we needed a new dynamic at this stage."
