Ranieri raring to go on Premier League return with Watford

Watford’s new manager Claudio Ranieri is nine days away from celebrating his 70th birthday but said he is still young enough to take on the challenge of keeping the club in the Premier League.

Ranieri arrives at Vicarage Road as successor to Xisco Munoz after the Spaniard left Watford seven games into the season.

The Italian, who led Leicester City to a shock league title in 2015-16 and last worked in England’s top flight during the 2018-19 campaign with Fulham, said he was looking forward to his Premier League return and outlined his ambition for Watford.
