Real Madrid officially signed their former coach Carlo Ancelotti

Carlo Ancelotti left Everton as Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane quits for the second time. The 61-year-old left Everton after 18 months at Goodison Park. Ancelotti was also a coach of Real Madrid for two years between 2013 and 2015. 

Ancelotti signed a three-year contract with Real Madrid and said the move was “an unexpected opportunity”. He replaces Zinedine Zidane at Real and the move leaves Everton looking for a sixth permanent manager in five years.

“I have the utmost respect for everyone associated with Everton and I look forward to being able to realize the exciting opportunities that lie ahead of them. While I’ve enjoyed living at Everton, I was presented with an unexpected opportunity that I think is the right move for me and my family right now,” he added.

Real will present Ancelotti to the press on Wednesday. Everton announced that “they will immediately begin the process of appointing a new manager”.

Carlo Ancelotti lifts Everton to 10th place in his only full season. The club’s average of 1.53 points per game under Carlo Ancelotti is better than any other previous boss. Ancelotti led Everton to 10th place during his only full season, finishing 12th in the previous campaign.

The Italian has won 15 major trophies during his career and is one of three managers to have won three European Cups – alongside Liverpool legend Bob Paisley and former Real Zidane boss. He has home titles with Milan in his homeland, Chelsea FC in England, Paris Saint-Germain in France and Bayern Munich in Germany.

Ancelotti won the Champions League for the third time in 2014 while at Real Madrid. Having previously won the Champions League twice with AC Milan, he guided Real Madrid to a tenth benchmark success in the competition in 2014, but left after a year as manager.

Real won the Champions League three times under Zidane but ended the 2020-21 campaign without a trophy after finishing second in La Liga behind rivals Atletico Madrid.
