ESPN staff

Fabrizio Ravanelli has been appointed as manager of Ligue 1 side Ajaccio, the club have confirmed on their official website.

The former Juventus, Lazio, Marseille and Italy national team striker, 44, makes the move to France for his first senior managerial role after working as a youth coach at Juve.

He will be joined by fellow Italian Giampiero Ventrone who brings with him a wealth of experience after working under Marcelo Lippi at Juve and, most recently, with Antonio Conte at Siena.

Ajaccio's former manager Albert Emon quit on May 28, with club president Alain Orsoni citing 'personal issues' as the reason for his exit.

The club finished 17th in Ligue 1 last season, avoiding relegation by just two points on the final day of the season.
