Everton confirmed Carlo Ancelotti has left his job at Everton to take over the reigns at Real Madrid, the club he coached between 2013 and 2015. With Zidane sending out an open letter to fans about his departure from Real Madrid, things developed very quickly for the Los Blancos as they appointed the Italian on a three year deal.
The Italian confirmed his move through Twitter and thanked Everton and their fans by saying “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.”
“I have complete respect for everyone associated with Everton and hope they can achieve the exciting opportunities they have in front of them.”
“While I have enjoyed being at Everton I have been presented with an unexpected opportunity which I believe is the right move for me and my family at this time.”
Real Madrid announced the return of Ancelotti through their Twitter page.
The departure of Carlo Ancelotti leaves Everton in search of their sixth manager in the last five years.
