Italian manager, Carlo Ancelotti, has dumped English club, Everton to reunite with Spanish football club, Real Madrid, signing a three-year agreement with the 13 times Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) champions league winner.
The 61-year-old Italian, who managed Real Madrid for two years between 2013 and 2015, has left Everton after 18 months in charge at Goodison Park, guiding the club to maintain its English Premier League status.
Explaining the reason behind his decision to sign a three-year contract, Ancelotti described the move as an unexpected opportunity that cannot be denied.
He added: “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 will present Ancelotti to the media on Wednesday, while Everton said they “will begin the process of appointing a new manager immediately”.
