Carlo Ancelotti 2019 –

Everton confirmed Carlo Ancelotti as the club's new manager on 21st December 2019 following Marco Silva's dismissal from the role and the Italian's departure from Napoli, both earlier that month.

Ancelotti signed a four-and-a-half-year contract and became the third permanent appointee under Farhad Moshiri's reign at Goodison Park following the high-profile capture of Ronald Koeman in 2016 and the protracted pursuit of Silva that began the following year that led to the Portuguese being hired in May 2018. Controversial coach, Sam Allardyce, was installed on an interim basis after Koeman was sacked less 18 months into the job having achieved Moshiri's goal of avoiding relegation in 2017-18.

Ancelotti, meanwhile, was sacked by Napoli 10 days prior to joining Everton despite leading them to the second place in the Italian top flight last season and securing their passage to the knockout phase of the Champions League. It ended a difficult relationship with the Serie A club's chairman, Aurelio De Laurentiis, one that had made a parting of the ways at Stadio San Paolo seem inevitable.

It was a fortuitous development for Moshiri who was said to have been within hours of handing David Moyes a route back into Premier League management before he was able to persuade Ancelotti to take up the challenge at Goodison Park.

The world-renowned Italian coach, who was infamously fired by Chelsea in a corridor at Goodison following a league game against Everton in 2011, was reportedly made one of the highest-paid coaches in Europe by Moshiri, although subsequent reports suggest he was signed up on the same £6m-per-annum salary that Koeman was on. It was generally, however, that he sought assurances from the Blues' hierarchy that there was scope for significant investment to upgrade the team.

He officially took charge on Boxing Day 2019 when the Toffees faced Burnley at home, taking the reins from Duncan Ferguson who had successfully steered the club out of the relegation zone over a three-match stint that yielded a rousing Premier League win over Chelsea and draws against Manchester United and Arsenal. Ferguson would stay on at the club as one of the new man's assistants alongside Ancelotti's son, Davide.

Ancelotti is one of the most decorated managers in the game and, as such, his appointment represented an impressive coup for Everton and another statement of intent by Moshiri. The Reggiolo-born manager assumed his 10th managerial role having helmed some of the biggest names in European football, including Juventus, AC Milan, Paris Saint- Germain, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.

He had won 15 major trophies in his 24-year career prior to arriving at Goodison, is one of a select few to have won the Champions League three times and has won league titles in four different countries.
