Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti has been asked about his future plans and ambitions for the club, by the club’s official website.
Ancelotti says he wants to have the club challenging for ‘titles’ within three years and wants to stay longer than the four-and-a-half year deal he signed this season.
He said: “I signed a four-and-a-half-year deal and I would like to finish my contract, to stay here, to do my best. And after that, if there is a possibility to continue, I would like to stay more. The ambition and idea is to stay longer.
“We have some young players that are growing. Year-by-year, I think we are going to improve. (Within three years) I think I see Everton (towards) the top of the table, fighting for some titles, fighting to be competitive in Europe.”
TBR’s View – Ancelotti proving the doubters wrong
There were plenty of critics when Ancelotti was appointed saying that he wasn’t the right man for a long-term project or what Everton needed.
That was always ludicrous with a manager of his quality who has achieved what he has in the game and now he has underlined his commitment to staying at the club long-term as well.
This Everton project finally has the right man at the helm and he is also getting more out of the club’s promising young players – and the fans will hope he can bring his ambitions for the future to fruition.
