On Tuesday, Real Madrid announced that it had signed Italian coach Carlo Ancelotti to train the Meringue for a second period and three years, succeeding Frenchman Zinedine Zidane.
Real Madrid wrote in his Twitter account, “Welcome back, Mr.,” referring to the 61-year-old Italian coach spent with the royal club between 2013 and 2015 when he led him to the Champions League, European Super Cup, and Club World Cup in 2014.
In a report earlier Tuesday, the Spanish newspaper “Marca” revealed that Ancelotti, the Everton coach, is currently leading the list of candidates to train Real Madrid.
On the other hand, Zinedine Zidane is not expected to coach any of the other giant clubs in Europe, as all of them have clung to their coaches or have hired new coaches unless Zidane decides to wait until the summer of 2022 to work.
It is noteworthy that the French coach finished his second term with Real Madrid, who had previously led him to the league title on two occasions, in addition to three Champions League titles since 2015.
Real Madrid ended the season in second place, two points behind Atletico, and knocked out the Champions League semi-finals and the 32nd round in the King’s Cup, ending the season empty-handed for the first time in 11 years.
