Everton confirm the appointment of former Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti



Everton confirm the appointment of former Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti who will be on a four and a half year deal.

The Toffees have been searching for a permanent manager to replace Marco Silva who was sacked in early December.

Former Everton striker Duncan Ferguson took over on a temporary basis and will join Ancelotti’s backroom staff having impressed in his short spell as manager.

Ancelotti joins the Toffees having recently been sacked by Italian giants Napoli due to some off the pitch politics and poor Serie A results.

The confirmation of the appointment came ahead of Everton’s fixture against Arsenal which ended in a 0-0 stalemate. Ancelotti was seen in the stands watching his future side as was new Arsenal boss and former Everton player Mikel Arteta.

Arteta was one of the rumoured candidates to replace Marco Silva but Arsenal swooped in as Everton opted to go for Ancelotti, who was also a candidate for the Arsenal job.

The Italian great is one of the best of the generation having won 15 major trophies during his managerial career and is only one of three managers to win the European Cup/Champions League three times.

The 60-year-old has managed some of the world’s biggest clubs in AC Milan and Real Madrid where he won his Champions League titles.

He has also managed in the Bundesliga where he took over from Pep Guardiola at Bayern Munich with great success and managed in Ligue 1 with Paris Saint-Germain where he helped the French side become a European giant.

Ancelotti has a lot of Premier League experience as well, having managed Chelsea, where he guided the Blues to a domestic double in his debut season, winning the league and FA Cup.

His Chelsea side was the team to have scored the most goals in a campaign until Guardiola’s Manchester City team broke his record in the 2017-18 season by scoring 106 goals- 3 more than Ancelotti’s side.

Everton are currently in 15th place after a terrible start to their Premier League campaign under Marco Silva.

However, Duncan Ferguson has been able to turn around the Toffees’ form as Everton beat Chelsea 3-1 and drew 1-1 with Manchester United.

They are out of the Carabao Cup though despite coming back from 2-0 down to an in-form Leicester City side as they lost agonisingly on penalties.
