Fabrizio Ravanelli to manage Ukrainian side Arsenal Kyiv

Former Italy international Fabrizio Ravanelli is named as the new head coach of Ukrainian side Arsenal Kyiv.

Former Italy striker Fabrizio Ravanelli has been named as the new manager of Ukrainian side Arsenal Kyiv.

The ex-Middlesbrough and Derby County forward has signed a one-year deal with the club, who were promoted to the country's top flight last season, reports Sky Sports News.

"I am grateful to Arsenal for the invitation. We are opening a new page of cooperation, which, I hope, will be long and fruitful," the broadcaster quotes Ravanelli as saying.

"My wife wasn't very happy with this, but she knows how important it is for me. My three children understood it too."

Ravanelli's only prior coaching experience is a stint in charge of Juventus's youth team and a fleeting spell as head coach of French side Ajaccio in 2013.
