Carlo Ancelotti, the former Everton manager, has been re-appointed as Real Madrid’s new manager.
Ancelotti, who led Everton to a 10th-place finish in the Premier League last season,
was anticipated to stay at Goodison Park for the 2021-22 season, as his contract was set to expire in 2024.However,
shortly after Zinedine Zidane stepped down as Real Madrid manager last week,
the Italian emerged as a contender for the empty position.
Los Blancos have revealed that Ancelotti will return on a three-year deal after leading the team to Champions
League victory during his two-year tenure from 2013 to 2015.
Ancelotti stated in a separate statement on Everton’s official website:
“I’d want to express my gratitude to the Board of Directors,
the players, and the Evertonians for their unwavering support throughout my time at the club.
“I have the utmost respect for everyone affiliated with Everton and am hopeful that they
will be able to capitalize on the wonderful chances that lie ahead of them.
“While I have enjoyed my time at Everton,
an unexpected opportunity has offered itself that I
believe is the best option for me and my family at this time.
In his 18 months as manager at Goodison Park, Ancelotti won 31,
drew 14, and lost 22 of his 67 games, a career-low win rate of 46.27 percent.
