ROME (AP) - AS Roma has accepted coach Claudio Ranieri’s resignation and replaced him with former forward Vincenzo Montella.

Ranieri offered to quit Sunday after his team wasted a three-goal lead in a 4-3 loss to Genoa. It was Roma’s fourth consecutive defeat, including a 3-2 home loss last week in the Champions League to Ukraine’s Shaktar Donetsk, which was playing its first competitive match in more than two months.

Montella played for Roma when it last won the Serie A title in 2001. He will coach the team until the end of the season.
