Ranieri: Cagliari identify Juric as potential successor – report

Ivan Juric Head Coach of Torino FC
Ivan Juric, Head Coach of Torino FC, looks on prior to the Serie A TIM match between Torino FC and SSC Napoli at Stadio Olimpico di Torino on January 07, 2024 in Turin, Italy. 

Cagliari are already beginning to plan for life after Claudio Ranieri and could make an approach for current Torino coach Ivan Juric, according to reports in Italy late on Tuesday night.

Ranieri stepped down from his position on Tuesday evening after securing Serie A safety over the weekend. It was a mutually agreed termination of contract, as the 72-year-old had two years remaining on his deal, which was due to expire next summer, in 2025.

Juric to replace Ranieri?

However, according to reports from Gianluca Di Marzio, Cagliari’s first point of contact will be Juric, who himself is set to leave his position at the end of the 2023-24 season.

Back in February, the Granata boss suggested that he would leave the club if they were unable to land European Football for next season.

According to Tuesday night’s report, Cagliari had already made an unsuccessful attempt to appoint Juric, dating back to his time before Torino. It will, of course, be down to Juric himself whether he decides to entertain Cagliari’s suggested proposals.

Di Marzio suggests that Cagliari had also thought about making a move for Paolo Vanoli of Venezia, who is currently mid-way through the Serie B play-off semi-finals. However, he looks set to join Torino as the eventual successor to Juric.
