Fulham manager Claudio Ranieri got a very good, and very important, win over Southampton last week - but this is a much tougher assignment.

Sarri, who had been coaching at Antella, in the fifth and sixth tiers of Italian football, on the outskirts of Florence at the time had visited La Viola as the former banker sought to make his mark as a coach.

"He has been straightforward with me, and I need to be ready when the opportunity comes".

"He has to shoot more; he has the quality to shoot, he must improve", Ranieri added.
