I think this basically means Ranieri must get second place for him to stay here next season.Claudio Ranieri's chances of sitting on the Juventus bench next season have increased as Giovanni Cobolli Gigli has praised him for his work.
Ranieri wasn't able to deliver the silverware that the Old Lady's fans demanded this term and most experts expect him to be given his marching orders at the end of the campaign.
But the club have been keen to stress their satisfaction with the former Parma man's work and Cobolli Gigli has again lavished praise on his Coach.
“We saw a great game against Milan last weekend and the team had obviously been well managed by Ranieri,” he asserted.
“We have said that for now we just want to go forward to the end of the season and look for the nine points that could bring us second place.
“After that we will make our decisions. But in the long meeting that we had two days ago there was a substantial appreciation for the work that Ranieri has done this year.”
Genoa boss Gian Piero Gasperini and Bari tactcian Antonio Conte are the favourites to replace Ranieri.
Oh and shouldn't Coboli be more worried about the extention of his contract?
