Everton fans loved seeing Ancelotti flop in Champions League action

Everton fans loved watching Ancelotti flop in Europe.

Carlo Ancelotti, having left Everton over the summer, had a dreadful result last night in his second spell with Real Madrid

Los Blancos are top of La Liga, yet in the Champions League they found themselves losing at home to Moldova’s FC Sheriff.

This is one of the greatest ever Champions League upsets and it’s one that the Toffees thoroughly enjoyed.

At Everton, Ancelotti brought his famous man management skills, but tactically things weren’t up to scratch.

Under Rafa Benitez, a new system has been implemented and the supporters are able to enjoy them string some wins together.

Given their strong start to the season, being able to watch on as Ancelotti flopped against Sheriff was enjoyable.

The fans were far from happy with the way in which the Italian left them, so this was everything they wanted.

Sheriff were sublime on the night, though.

They took the lead early before conceding a second half penalty.

Then, right at the death, a simply fantastic left-footed half-volley saw them take the points.

That leaves the Moldovan side above Real Madrid in their Champions League group.

Ancelotti has serious egg on his face after the result.

The Toffees do have a lot of things to thank Ancelotti for, though.

He delivered them their first win at Anfield since 1999 and saw helped Calvert-Lewin become an incredible goalscorer.

His exit caught a lot of the Merseysiders off guard, though.

At least in Benitez they have a competent replacement and they’ve enjoyed seeing Ancelotti fail for Real Madrid.
