Those who love mature and calm, but goal-oriented football also love him him for what he does. In a chat with Sky Sports, Carlo Ancelotti reflects on six months in charge at Everton; the merseyside aspiring side. Having subdued Leicester, the Dogs of War could move above Tottenham when they meet on Monday Night, and having won all their matches since the restart, Ancelotti’s side are full of confidence and can beat just anybody.
Back in December, and following Duncan Ferguson’s fine spell as caretaker, Carlo Ancelotti emerged Everton’s fourth permanent manager since Roberto Martinez was sacked in May 2016. The club needed stability after another period of shakes under Marco Silva, and his arrival was grasped as a major “right peg in the right hole”. “He is one of the finest managers in world football and a proven winner,” said the club’s director of football Marcel Brands when he was newly appointed the club’s manager.
Notable milestones have been reached during his first six months. In early February, Everton won a Premier League game after conceding the first goal for the first time since December 2017 – a run of 35 matches unlike under Silva where Everton went behind 28 times and never fought back to win. He is the right man leading The People’s Club to Europa cup next season.
