Carlo Ancelloti has been unveiled as the new Real Madrid Coach after the Italian parted ways with Everton.
The former AC Milan coach is joining Real Madrid for the second time, just few years after he was sacked mid-season only for outgoing Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane to replace him and go on to win that season’s UEFA Champions League.

He leaves Everton after just two seasons on Merseyside where his biggest achievements were bringing out the best in Dominic Calvert-Lewin and beating Liverpool for the first time in over a decade.
The Italian bade farewell to Everton, noting that he decided to leave for the Spanish giants because they have always been in his heart.
“I would like to thank Everton FC, my players and the supporters for giving me the opportunity to manage this fantastic and historical club. I decided to leave as I have a new challenge with a team that was always in my heart, Real Madrid.”
Ancelloti puts pen to paper.
“I leave taking with me all the amazing moments we have experienced together and wish the Club and fans all the best.”
The former Chelsea coach has had a glittering career and is one of only three managers to have won the Champions League thrice, once with Real Madrid and twice with AC Milan.
He is also one of only two to have managed teams in four finals. He has won the FIFA Club World Cup twice, managing Milan and Real Madrid. Ancelotti is also one of seven people to have won the European Cup or Champions League as both a player and a manager. He is regarded as one of the best and most successful managers of all time.
He has also managed PSG, Napoli, Bayern Munich, Juventus and Parma.
