Star coach Carlo Ancelotti has found a new job at English football club Everton 11 days after his ejection from Italian runners-up SSC Napoli.
The Toffees announced the signing of the Freheren head coach of German record holders Bayern Munich on Saturday, just before the point game against London league rivals Arsenal until 2024.
Ancelotti will be on Everton’s bench to replace The Portuguese Marco Silva on Christmas Day (26 December) in the Boxing Day match against Burnley.
“There is a clear vision of the owner and the drive to get successes and titles. It excites me to help make this vision a reality,” Ancelotti said in a statement from the club.
His involvement with the local rivals of Champions League winner FC Liverpool was already evident at the beginning of the week. Last Monday, Ancelotti and Everton’s board are said to have reached a final agreement. Against Arsenal, however, Scotland’s Duncan Ferguson is on the bench again as interim coach.
Ancelotti to take Everton out of the table
Everton are Ancelotti’s second stop in the Premier League. From 2009 to 2011, the ex-professional worked in London with Chelsea FC and led the Blues to the Double in his first year under his direction.
Everton are in acute danger of relegation after a botched first-round match. Under Ferguson, however, the cheeky European Cup winner has been in the danger zone after the first two games since silva’s separation.
Fer Ancelotti has made a faster-than-expected comeback at Everton. Last week, the ex-professional officially sat out his post in The A-League just hours after reaching the Champions League quarter-finals.
