Ancelotti swaps Merseyside for Madrid


Ancelotti appointed Real Madrid manager

Carlo Ancelotti has left Everton to rejoin Real Madrid as their manager, signing a contract at the Bernabeu until 2024. He leaves Goodison Park having guided the Toffees to a 10th place finish in the Premier League last season. The Everton board will now meet in the coming days to discuss who will replace him.

The 61-year-old returns to Real Madrid six years after he was last at the helm at Los Blancos. He took over the role from a certain Jose Mourinho and enjoyed two seasons in charge between 2013-2015. Winning a Copa del Rey, a UEFA Super Cup, a FIFA Club World Cup and Champions League.

Since then Ancelotti has been a serial winner wherever he’s been finding success in Germany and Italy. However the Italian found it hard to boost Everton into the Champions League places which for decades, they have been crying out for.

Despite this, Everton do find themselves in a better position thanks to Ancelotti after his fairly brief spell in charge. He was able to attract top players such as James Rodriguez and Allan to Merseyside as well as expand the squad depth and allow them to be able to compete at the top of the Premier League.

The Toffees will now struggle to find a manager that equals the caliber of Ancelotti as they look for his replacement. David Moyes has already been linked with a return to the club, as well as Nuno Espírito  Santo who has just parted ways with their European hopefuls rivals Wolves. Also Rafa Benitez, someone who Liverpool fans will hope stays away from the Goodison dugout.
