How long will Ancelotti remain at Everton?
Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti has hinted that he could stay at the club beyond his current long-term deal, which takes him up to 2024.
The Italian has masterminded a revival at Goodison Park, following the sacking of Marco Silva and interim spell of Duncan Ferguson.
Since Ancelotti joined Everton, only Liverpool have picked up more points in the Premier League than the Toffees.
Considering Everton were under threat of getting dragged into a relegation battle under Silva, they’re now well and truly in the race for a top-six spot.
That has seen praise heaped on Ancelotti, and questions are now being raised of how far he can take Everton.
In news that will no doubt delight Toffees fans, Ancelotti is planning to stick around for a while.
“After that, if there is a possibility to continue, I would like to stay more”
According to Ancelotti, as quoted by the Liverpool Echo, the Italian wants to stay at Everton beyond his current deal.
His current contract is due to expire in 2024, roughly when Everton’s new stadium could be up and ready.
Judging by Ancelotti’s comments, he’s here to stay.
“I signed a four-and-a-half-year deal and I would like to finish my contract, to stay here, to do my best,” Ancelotti explained.
“And after that, if there is a possibility to continue, I would like to stay more. The ambition and idea is to stay longer. The plan is quite clear. First of all, the Club is going to build a new stadium, which is really important.
“The Club has big ambitions to be competitive in the Premier League and in Europe. We are working for this.
“The base of the squad is very good. We have some young players that are growing. Year-by-year, I think we are going to improve.”
