A memorable former Juventus striker has applied for the vacant Hearts job in Scotland

Fabrizio Ravanelli has thrown his hat in the ring.

FABRIZIO RAVANELLI HAS emerged as a shock contender for the vacant Hearts job.

The former Juventus striker has applied for the position after Ian Cathro was sacked as head coach earlier this week.

The Italian has some history with Scottish football having played five games with Dundee in 2003 and, although he also had stints with Middlesbrough, Marseille and Lazio, he remains best remembered for his time in Turin where he played between 1992 and 1996.

However, his coaching history is patchy.

After a spell with Juve’s youth teams, he took over French side Ajaccio – then in Ligue 1 – in 2013 but was sacked just three months into a two-year contract.

Ever since, he’s immersed himself in various punditry roles for Italian television.

Ravanelli will face competition from the current Hearts interim boss Jon Daly who has revealed he’d like the job on a full-time basis.

Whoever is appointed will report to Craig Levein, who is the club’s Director of Football.
