Former Chelsea and Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri has returned to management at Serie A side Sampdoria.
The experienced tactician has agreed a deal with the Genoa-based club through to 2021.
He steps into a void created by the dismissal of Eusebio Di Francesco.
It was decided that change was required in the dugout following a dismal start to the 2019-20 campaign.
Sampdoria currently sit bottom of the Italian top-flight with just three points.
