Former Chelsea and Leicester City coach Claudio Ranieri has been reportedly included on a shortlist to become the next manager of Guinea.
The Italian was among 87 candidates for the role and has been placed on a 17-man shortlist which also includes former Belgium, Tunisia and Algeria manager Georges Leekens.
Ranieri, who spent a turbulent period at Fulham last season, has been out of work since leaving AS Roma in May after taking over on a temporary basis.
According to Feguifoot, the 67-year-old will be interviewed for the role in Conakry on Thursday, alongside other notable names like former Burkina Faso and Gabon coach Paulo Duarte, ex-Togo coach Didier Six and Francois Zahoui who has coached both Ivory Coast and Niger.
Guinea has been searching for a new coach since Paul Put was sacked after the country exited the recent Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt in the round of 16 stage.
Put was also found guilty of allegedly breaching the institution’s code of ethics and its code of discipline, and subsequently banned for life from all football related activities in Guinea by Feguifoot.
