Some Everton fans angered as Ancelotti reportedly close to Real Madrid move
Some Everton fans were left angered after reports emerged claiming Carlo Ancelotti is in talks with Real Madrid.
According to Marca, the Italian is set for a shock return with an announcement due very soon.
He joined Everton back in December 2019 after Marco Silva was sacked as manager. The 61-year-old could only finish 10th in his first full season in charge of the club.
Ancelotti was famously sacked by the La Liga outfit back in 2015, just over a year after helping them win the Champions League. The 2014 triumph dubbed ‘La Decima’ was the side’s 10th Champions League victory and first since 2002.
An early exit from the blue half of Merseyside would leave the club looking for their fourth manager in just under two years.
Ancelotti to Real Madrid: Lack of stability emphasised on and off the pitch
On the pitch, the club is in disarray.
Despite an incredibly encouraging start to last season, the club finished 10th and without European football.
Meanwhile, off the pitch, the club could be set to lose their manager in what will be a bitter blow. The lack of stability in the manager’s role is hardly going to allow for consistency on the pitch.
After last season’s failures, there needs to be better planning if Everton harbour hopes of playing European football.
Here is how fans reacted to the report…
Would really feel like a MASSIVE backwards step with Ancelotti leaving. Another manager come and gone and another process we have to go through. Devastating news if it actually comes to fruition— The Toffee Blues (@EvertonNewsFeed) June 1, 2021
would just be a massive kick in the teeth with all he has said about the club and loving the area etc especially after the comments he made about the links a few weeks ago 😔— Taylor Ewart (@yourztrulyTE13) June 1, 2021
That will be a major set back— Ololade🦉 (@Babby008) June 1, 2021
We all just gunna pack it in? No point now is there.— Simon Lovelady Wakenshaw (@siewakes20) June 1, 2021
Certainly doesn’t make too much sense based on a lot of Ancelotti’s past comments, whether they be on his time at Madrid, his “project” at Everton, or his attitude towards what they’ve tried to do with the Super League. But then nothing is surprising anymore.— Steven Sinnott (@Steven_Sinnott) June 1, 2021
Man, what have I just woke up to. This is utterly devastating if proves true.— aaron free (@b0wseytoffeetit) June 1, 2021
