Nantes owner says Ranieri leaving job

Nantes coach Claudio Ranieri is leaving his job.

Nantes owner Waldemar Kita has announced former Leicester City and Roma coach Ranieri is departing.

"We can't hide anything," said Kita.

"We had a meeting with the sponsors, he thanked everyone. He has to be thanked for all the work he has done. It has not always been easy, there are regrets, but this is life and there is no anger."

The rapport between the men had been increasingly tense, with Kita publicly criticising his choices and Ranieri replying in interviews that a dismissal was an option if he wasn't satisfied.
