Ancelotti happy with decision
This week it was announced that Carlo Ancelotti would leave Everton and return to Real Madrid of whom he led to la Decima.
He has conducted a number of interviews since, revealing much about his perception of the situation.
Ancelotti spoke of understanding the responsibility but also the drive he has too succeed.
“I feel the responsibility and a strong enthusiasm, I will give my best. We know the goals of Real Madrid, we will try to reach them with all the experience and energy I have,” he said.
“I am very happy to return to the club I love, it is difficult to explain what I feel. Real is the most prestigious club in the world and where I spent an unforgettable two-year period. ”

He briefly referenced his time at Everton and felt it had become part of the experience which has made him a better coach, ready to take on what he feels to be the world’s number one job.
“I had a very good time at Everton. The atmosphere was positive and I worked with hardworking people. I come from positive experiences in Germany, Italy and England,” he said.
“All of them made me grow again and, today, I come back here with six years of experience in more . I know Real Madrid very well, the team and I will meet again some players that I have already coached in the past. We will do well.”
Ancelotti wont have Ramos
One player who Ancelotti is seemingly unlikely to be able to call upon is Sergio Ramos.
The now former Spanish international, having been left out of Luis Enrique’s Euro 2020 squad, has been in discussions over a new contract but with little success.
Ancelotti was asked about Ramos and spoke glowingly of him.
Ancelotti: “Sergio Ramos is a very important player. I know there are talks over a renovation, but I don’t know the details… when I do, I can say more. I’ll talk with the club about Ramos’ future”. ⚪️🇪🇸 #RealMadrid

However, reports suggest a breakdown in the relationship between Ramos and Florentino Perez could now see him leave.
The Mirror reported that in addition to the financial situation of the club, the relationship between the pair had ‘collapsed.’
And sadly it seems as though he will leave with some bitterness, his relationship with controversial Madrid president Florentino Perez appearing to have completely collapsed.
Sixteen years, five La Liga titles and four Champions Leagues.
But Ramos’ time at Madrid is coming to a bitter end 😳https://t.co/wRdyhwPpmw
