Everton appoint Carlo Ancelotti as manager

In charge: Carlo Ancelotti

Carlo Ancelotti has been named the new Everton manager, replacing Marco Silva, who was sacked earlier this month.

The Italian is one of the most celebrated coaches of his generation, having won league titles in Italy, Germany, France and England, while also winning the Champions League three times.

Ancelotti's first game will be the home Premier League fixture against Burnley on Boxing Day.

Interim manager Duncan Ferguson will be in charge of the visit of Arsenal in the league on Saturday.

The 60-year-old was most recently manager of Napoli, but was sacked earlier this month amidst off-field turmoil, despite guiding them into the Champions League last 16.

Prior to that, he had managed a host of Europe’s top sides, including AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid, where he delivered La Decima, the club’s long-awaited tenth Champions League title.

His sole spell in England to date was as manager of Chelsea, where he won the Premier League and FA Cup double in his first season in charge, but was sacked at the end of his second campaign after finishing second to Manchester United.

Silva was shown the door following December’s 5-2 Merseyside derby defeat against Liverpool, with the club in the relegation zone, leaving former player Ferguson in temporary charge.
