Claudio Ranieri leaves Cagliari. After having achieved salvation a day early, the Roman coach – ANSA learns – announced to the rossoblù club his intention to end the adventure in Sardinia, his second after the historic ride from C to A between 1988 and 1990. The official announcement is expected in the next few hours.

«After the promotion to Serie A, which perhaps we didn't expect so immediate when I arrived in January, and this salvation that arrived now, I decided the right thing, to leave now». Thus Claudio Ranieri in a video message to the fans on social media. “Reluctantly, because it is a hard and painful decision. I prefer to leave like this and maybe another year when things aren't going well. I want to leave a good memory for people. I hope to be remembered as a positive person, without the fans I won't we would have done it. I'm proud of you.”
