Italian professional football manager, Carlo Ancelotti, has been appointed as Real Madrid’s new head coach.
The announcement was contained in a statement by the Spanish club on Tuesday, June 1, TrillerTunes understands.
It could be recalled that Madrid had sacked the now 61-year-old coach six years ago. Ancelotti had spent two seasons at Real Madrid from 2013-2015, winning La Decima, the much-coveted 10th UEFA Champions League title for the club.
He was, however, sacked after failing to win a trophy in his second season at the club.
The Spanish club has now considered bringing back Ancelotti after he resigned from Everton FC.
The three-time Champions League winner leaves Everton after just 18 months in charge at Goodison Park. The former PSG and Chelsea manager has now signed a three-year contract with Madrid and will be unveiled on Wednesday to take over from Zinedine Zidane who resigned on Monday.
“Real Madrid C. F. announces that Carlo Ancelotti will be the club’s first-team coach for the next three seasons,” the club said.
“The ceremonial signing of the contract will take place tomorrow with club president Florentino Pérez at Real Madrid City, after which Ancelotti will address the media from 6pm (CET) in an online press conference.”
Ancelotti said the “unexpected opportunity” and allure of Madrid was too good to overlook.
