Real Madrid Appionts Carlo Ancelotti As New Manager Of The Club For The Second Time.

Real Madrid have re-appointed Carlo Ancelotti as their new manager for a second time.

He has managed Real Madrid for two years between 2013 and 2015.

The 61-year-old Italian manager would leave his role at Everton after 18-months, and succeed Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid.

He signed a three-year contract with the Los Blancos side until June 2024, and set to earn around €6million per season.

Real had won the Champions League three consecutive times under Zidane but ended the just concluded 2020-21 season without a trophy, having finished second in La Liga behind city rivals Atletico Madrid.

Ancelotti, who joined Everton on a four-and-a-half-year contract in December 2019, said after the appointment: “I would like to thank the board of directors, the players, and the Evertonians for the tremendous support they have all given me during my time at the club.

“I have complete respect for everyone associated with Everton and hope they can achieve the exciting opportunities they have in front of them.

“While I have enjoyed being at Everton I have been presented with an unexpected opportunity which I believe is the right move for me and my family at this time.”

Ancelotti was the manager who delivered the La Decima for Real Madrid with an incredible Champions League triumph over rivals Atletico Madrid in the 2013/14 season in Lisbon but departed a year after. 

His record in his two-seasons stay at the Spanish capital, includes 119 games, 89 wins, 14 draws, 16 Losses and 55 Clean Sheets. He  also won the Copa del Rey 2013/14, the UEFA Super Cup in 2014, and the Club World Cup in 2014.

He has won 15 major trophies during his managerial career and is one of only three managers to have won three European Cups, alongside Liverpool's legend Bob Paisley and former Real boss Zidane.

The Italian also has domestic titles with AC Milan in his homeland, Chelsea in England, Paris St-Germain in France and also in Germany with Bayern Munich.

According to sources, the Everton board will be meeting tonight to discuss possible replacements for the departing Carlo Ancelotti.

We also understand that the Everton board met last week to support Carlo Ancelotti with his plans for next season, as he was still held in huge regard by Everton supporters, who have no w been left bitterly disappointed by his decision to leave the Goodison Park.

Carlo Ancelotti guided Everton to their first win over Liverpool at Anfield since 1999, and 10th-place league finish in his first full season in charge.

Ex-Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez who lives on Merseyside, is an obvious top choice to replace Ancelotti at Everton next season.
