In response to his arrival, supporters trust director Gianluigi Baori felt hard-pressed to contain his excitement;
"Ranieri is a manager with pedigree, and we can't wait to see his experience when the new season comes. I believe we can mount a serious challenge for Champions League football this season with him at the helm."
