Ranieri ponders legal action

20 May 2009 - 09:35:47

Former Juventus coach Claudio Ranieri has threatened to take legal action after being dramatically fired by the Italian giants

Ranieri was axed on Monday to be replaced by youth academy director Ciro Ferrara and the veteran coach was less than happy with his treatment.

He told La Repubblica: "(Juve general manager) Jean-Claude Blanc has taken his word back.

"Real men don't behave like this and, most of all, this is not Juve's style.

Ranieri is unhappy in particular that Juve have opted to keep him on their payroll rather than pay him a 1.5million euro severance package.

He added: "When we signed the contract, Blanc promised that if Juve were to become dissatisfied with my work, they would activate that clause.

"They didn't do it and Blanc took his word back. I didn't expect it and I thought certain things would not happen at Juve."
