Former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has been appointed manager of Everton.

Ancelotti was recently sacked by Napoli and was considered for the Arsenal job prior to them appointing former Manchester City coach Mikel Arteta.

The Italian becomes the permanent replacement for Marco Silva at Goodison Park after signing a four and a half year contract.

Ancelotti led Chelsea to the Premier League title in 2010 but was sacked after his second season at the club.

Ancelotti also won league titles with AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich. He won two Champions League trophies with AC Milan and one with Real Madrid.

“This is a great club with a rich history and a very passionate fan base,” Ancelotti said after he was confirmed as Everton boss.

“There is a clear vision from the owner and the board to deliver success and trophies. That is something that appeals to me as a manager and I am thrilled at the prospect of being able to work with everybody at the club to help make that vision a reality.

“I have seen from the performances in the last two weeks that the players are capable of so much. The work Duncan has done is a great credit to him. Strong organisation, strong discipline and the right motivation are some of the key ingredients in football and I’m pleased that he will be part of my backroom team moving forward.”
