Very disappointed in Ancelotti so all that talk about being committed to the club and wanting to coach us at the new stadium were just falsehoods. I have admired and followed this coach for years but no more!
I was much more invested in Everton when Carlo joined as I was always a big fan. I even tuned into all his press conferences on YouTube.
I wouldn’t begrudge a younger manager going to Real Madrid, just disappointed that he left at the first opportunity and I wouldn’t be surprised if he found the club horribly run and below his standards. Sometimes from the outside before joining the club you don’t know these things and then once you join, you realised you’ve made a mistake. Also he’s never really left any other club aside from Milan when he just got tired from being there for 8 years. So I think this sends a big warning to anyone else that might be approached by Everton, if the project was so good Carlo wouldn’t have left after 18 months.
