Carlo Ancelotti has returned for a second time as the Head Coach of Spanish football giants, Real Madrid.

The Italian manager had earlier made his decision known to leave Everton amidst interest from Real Madrid, following Zinedine Zidane‘s resignation at the Bernabeu.

A club statement from Everton reads thus: “Everton can confirm that Carlo Ancelotti has left his position as manager to take up the role of Head Coach at Real Madrid.” This finally puts to bed rumours of his departure from the Toffees.

Meanwhile, the 61-year-old was announced on Tuesday evening by Real Madrid, after signing a 3-year contract in what he called “an unexpected opportunity”.

Ancelotti was manager of Real Madrid for 2 years between 2013 and 2015, guiding them to their 10th Champions League victory in 2014.

In a Twitter post, he thanked Everton, the players and the fans for their support, stating that he is leaving because of a “new challenge”. 


Carlo Ancelotti spent 18 months in charge of the Toffees, leaving them 10th on the Premier League table and looking for a 6th manager in 5 years.
