It didn’t take Carlo Ancelotti too long to find another job, with Everton announcing the Italian as their new manager.
The 60-year-old takes the helm at Goodison Park following the sacking of Marco Silva earlier this month, having been sacked himself by Napoli just last week on the back of dressing-room discontent, despite guiding them to the Champions League last 16.
Vastly experienced, Ancelotti is a three-time winner of the Champions League — twice with AC Milan and once at Real Madrid — and also has Premier League credentials, having won the double during his time at Chelsea.
He’s also won league titles in France, Italy and Germany.
Indeed, the Italian has spent the majority of his managerial career at teams fighting it out at the very top of their respective leagues, but it appears the challenge of revitalising Everton appeals to him.
The Merseyside club are currently lodged in a relegation battle, although they won against Chelsea and drew at Man United in their past two Prem matches under caretaker manager Duncan Ferguson — who ruled himself out of the running for the job last week despite his brilliant start.
The Italian will be seated in the stands for their match against Arsenal today ahead of being officially announced by the club.
The Gunners also have a new manager watching on from the stands today in former midfielder Mikel Arteta.
