Claudio Ranieri took over as Fulham boss last week.New Fulham manager Claudio Ranieri intends to “tinker clever” in the quest to find a winning formula at Craven Cottage.The 67-year-old replaced Slavisa Jokanovic earlier this month with the Whites struggling at the foot of the Premier League table and having lost their last seven games in all competitions.It is Ranieri’s first job in England since his title-winning spell in charge of Leicester ended with the sack in February 2017.AdChoices广告During his four years as Chelsea manager, the Italian earned the moniker ‘Tinkerman’ due to the number of changes he made to his team on a regular basis.Fulham have yet to name the same defensive unit for any of their 12 games back in the top flight, but Ranieri insists he will be looking to make astute adjustments as he aims to steer the club clear of relegation.Asked how important it is to have a consistent back-line, he replied: “It’s important, I am Tinkerman but I tinker clever.“It’s important to maintain the same line-up for some matches but you never know, I want everybody available and then I can choose.”Ranieri inherits a squad which saw no fewer than 12 new faces, either permanently or on loan, signed in the summer.But he is planning to wipe the slate clean and has been analysing videos of Fulham’s earlier matches following their poor start to the campaign.“Clean everything and restart,” he said when the current losing streak was mentioned ahead of Saturday’s visit of fellow strugglers Southampton.“Today I said this, restart every time, we can win, lose, clean and restart tomorrow. Forget the past.“I show to them some videos from the previous game and I said what is right and what is wrong.“One thing is to watch, but after we have been on the pitch to repeat the movement and slowly, slowly they get better.“It’s not possible for everything we do on the pitch to repeat, there will be some mistakes and I hope these mistakes there isn’t a goal.” See also:Ranieri wants strike partner for MitrovicRanieri happy with Fulham transfer policyClaudio’s starts – a look back at three of Ranieri’s previous first matchesRanieri prepared to get angry with Fulham players Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas won’t hesitate in dropping Fernando Torres if his goal drought starts to get in the way of a title push.Torres was overlooked by Vicente del Bosque in midweek as Spain beat Liechtenstein to secure their place at Euro 2012, while replacement Alvaro Negredo scored twice.Villas-Boas believes the £50 million striker’s class remains and is hopeful Torres comes back with a bang, but will not let his search for form affect the team.He told The Daily Mirror: “He didn’t lose his talent talent because he’s played 21 games and only scored one goal.“The talent is there and the question is regaining confidence.“That comes from training and from time and finding the back of the net, so we have to persist. “But it can’t compromise the team.“The moment it compromises the team it has to come to an end.”After being dropped by the Spanish coach, Villas-Boas has warned Torres to up his game if he wants to stay in his plans.He continued: “I don’t make a first choice team, just the choice for the next game.“Fernando started the first three games and Didier [Drogba] came off the bench. “We make choices regarding what we see. I have no problem dropping players.”“From the feedback he gives me. What is most important from this player not just what he has achieved in terms of goals but what he is telling you.”Chelsea will definitely be without Drogba who is still recovering after being knocked out by goalkeeper John Ruddy in the game against Norwich two weeks ago.He added:”Didier has to be authorised to make a full return to training.“The first days after the incident he was in tremendous pain and while he’s had complete support since we have to make sure he’s fully recovered before he comes back to training because they are the right requirements neurologically.“We will push it to limit to get him available for Manchester United, although he will miss Sunderland and probably Bayer Leverkusen.”
