The first manager of the 2018/2019 season to lose his job is Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic, and the Cottagers have installed an immediate successor in Claudio Ranieri.
The move was probably in motion before the Liverpool match even took place, as no one could have expected Fulham to get a positive result in what would be Jokanovic's final game in charge. With the international break, it allows Ranieri more time to get acclimated with his new surroundings. Clearly, the issue that hurt Jokanovic the most and is Ranieri's primary objective is to turn around a defense that is currently on pace to concede the most goals in a single PL season. Of course, Ranieri's resume is well documented, as he guided Leicester to their improbable title win. This would seem a more difficult task for Ranieri though. Jokanovic could not find the right mix of defenders and Fulham may find it difficult to make the personnel moves in January necessary to stave off relegation. Nov 14 - 5:58 AM
