Jeffery Schlupp set to reunite with former coach Claudio Ranieri

Ghana defender Jeffery Shlupp is likely to be reunited with Italian manager Claudio Ranieri after Sam Allardyce resigned as Crystal Palace manager.

Schlupp was signed by Allardyce from Leicester City as they built a side that helped the Eagles escape relegation.

However, the former England manager left his post because he was unhappy with the club’s top hierarchy.

Meanwhile, Palace who are in search of a new manager are likely to settle for former Leicester city manager Claudio Ranieri according to reports in England.

Ranieri was sacked by Leicester in February this year despite leading the foxes to Premier League success a season ago.

The Italian has declared his intention to return management soon and the likeliest destination could be Crystal Palace where he gets to reunite with former player Jeffery Schlupp.
