Fabrizio Ravanelli a shock contender for Motherwell job

The UK can't get enough of Italian managers at the moment, and speaking of which, a certain Fabrizio Ravanelli has emerged as a shock contender to replace Mark McGhee at Scottish Premier League strugglers Motherwell.

The Italian, known as the ‘White Feather’, has reportedly expressed an interest in taking up the vacancy at Fir Park, and can be currently be backed at 12/1 (Bet Victor) to bag the job, in what would be a surprise appointment.

Motherwell sacked McGhee last month and are believed to have received over 50 applicants for the post, with the likes of Jim Duffy, Stephen Robinson, Owen Coyle and John Hughes all still in the mix.

Ravanelli, a former Juventus, Lazio and Marseille striker, is best known in England for his spells at Middlesbrough and Derby, while he also made a handful of appearances for Scottish side Dundee.

The Champions League winner is famed for his memorable goal celebration - pulling his shirt over his head - while he netted a hat-trick on his debut for Middlesbrough, and also scored in the 1997 League Cup final for the club.

In terms of managerial experience Ravanelli spent two years coaching with the Juventus youth team, before venturing over to France in 2013 with AC Ajaccio, although he lasted only 13 matches in the dugout, registering a single victory.

Over the weekend Motherwell moved three points clear of the play-off relegation spot with a 2-1 victory at Kilmarnock, which ended a torrid run of four straight defeats. Next up on Saturday is a tricky trip to high-flying Aberdeen.
