The Toffees making moves
Everton are reportedly set to confirm Carlo Ancelotti as their new boss by the end of the week, replacing caretaker boss Duncan Ferguson.
The Toffees were in free fall under Marco Silva, finding themselves in the relegation zone after a 5-2 thrashing at Liverpool.
That result led to Silva’s sacking, and Duncan Ferguson was placed in charge.
Surprisingly, Everton’s form then took a drastic upturn.
The Blues beat Chelsea 3-1 at Goodison Park, before holding Manchester United to a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.
Despite the work that he has done, Ferguson looks set to step aside at Everton, to make way for a new permanent manager.
According to reports, that new manager will be in by the end of the week.
Ancelotti’s heading for Goodison Park
According to Sky Sports, Carlo Ancelotti will be confirmed as Everton boss by the end of the week.
Ancelotti, on the face of it, looks a coup for the Toffees, having won titles almost everywhere he’s been.
Considered an elite name, Ancelotti could be the final piece of the jigsaw that Everton need to move forward.
According to Sky: ‘Carlo Ancelotti is expected to be confirmed as Everton’s new permanent manager by the end of this week’.
They claim that he’s been offered a four-and-a-half-year contract, and could take charge of Everton’s boxing day clash with Burnley.
Duncan Ferguson will also be kept on as an assistant to Ancelotti, after his impressive interim work.
All that’s left for Ancelotti, according to the report, is ‘to end his contract with Napoli and that is expected to be resolved by Wednesday.’
After that, he will be tasked with guiding Everton away from the relegation battle, and up the table.
