Real Madrid consider Carlo Ancelotti as Zidane’s replacement

Real Madrid is considering Everton’s Carlo Ancelotti as a replacement for Zinedine Zidane. The Madrid board is still searching for a replacement for Zinedine Zidane who stepped down from his post at the end of the La Liga campaign.

Reports suggest that contact was made with Ancelotti’s entourage four days ago. Everton is already looking for a replacement in case Ancelotti leaves, even though he is not the first-choice candidate for the head coach job at Real Madrid. Ancelotti’s entourage has convinced the Madrid board that he would be interested and wouldn’t turn down an offer to return back to Real Madrid.

After Massimiliano Allegri decided not to wait for Real Madrid’s offer and join Juventus, Ancelotti was added to list of candidates which include Raul Gonzalez and Antonio Conte.

It is worth remembering that Ancelotti already managed Real Madrid from 2013 to 2015, managing to break a streak of 12 years without winning the Champions League. In 2014, he won the tenth European Cup by beating Atletico Madrid in the final 4-1. In addition, he also won a Copa del Rey, a European Super Cup, and a Club World Cup. He was sacked on 25th May 2015, by the Madrid board with President Florentino Perez stating that Ancelotti had won the hearts of both the board and fans, and would always have a place in the club’s history because he was the coach that led them to the La Décima.

Ancelotti, is one of the most successful managers in the modern era, having won league titles in England, France, Italy, and Germany, as well as another two European cups at AC Milan.
