Carlo Ancelotti Sends Warning to Barcelona Over Richarlison Pursuit


Carlo Ancelotti has warned Barcelona that they would need to make an offer Everton ‘cannot refuse’ to sign Brazilian forward Richarlison at the end of the season, while stressing his reluctance to sell.

The Spanish side were rumoured to have failed with an £85m bid for Richarlison during the January window, and while such claims were quickly rubbished, it is thought that there may be some substance to Barcelona’s interest.


Richarlison
However, regardless of whether they are interested or not, it looks like Ancelotti has little interest in selling a key player.

“I don’t think it will be difficult to resist [a summer bid for Richarlison] because it is enough to say no, there is no possibility because Richarlison is an important part of the future of Everton,” the boss said, via the Daily Star.

“This is the base from which the club has to build the future, and Richarlison is part of it, like the other young players we have – [Jordan] Pickford, [Mason] Holgate, [Moise] Kean, [Michael] Keane, [Dominic] Calvert-Lewin. We have a lot of young players.”


Michael Keane is actually 27 years old, but we’ll move on.

Ancelotti did joke that he might listen to a swap deal from Barcelona, hinting that he might be prepared to part with Richarlison if one of the world’s best players was on the other end of the offer.

“I don’t want to say anything but with Barcelona you can also do an exchange, no? They have a lot of fantastic players but I’m not nominating anyone!” he laughed.

“Everything can happen in football. If an offer arrives that you cannot refuse, and it is an offer that can improve the squad, then why not? But, now, I can say Richarlison is an important part.


“Richarlison renewed his contract one month ago. I was not here when he renewed but the fact that he renewed made me happy because he’s a fantastic player.

“He can play everywhere. He’s a modern striker in my opinion. He can play left, right, back or as one central striker. Technically he can improve but his movement is really good, his heading his fantastic, I was surprised, and he has a lot of power in his legs.

“He is a really complete striker but technically I think he can improve. In the control and in the controlling movement he can improve. This is the target with him. Individually the control has to be better.

Everton boss, Ancelotti sets bid for Napoli’s duo.


New Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti might be preparing a raid of his former club Napoli, with the Toffees linked with star attacking duo Lorenzo Insigne and Dries Mertens.

Despite heavy investment over the summer, Everton are desperate to bolster their forward line in the coming January transfer window, and the new boss has reportedly got an eye on two of his former players as possible (if unlikely) winter additions.


Dries Mertens,Lorenzo Insigne
Ancelotti worked closely with Insigne and Mertens during his time in Naples, and according to news outlets Le10Sport and Calcio Mercato (as cited by Sport Witness), the Italian boss is very keen to reunite with his former Serie A stars.

Mertens’ future at Napoli is in doubt, as the Belgium international has failed to negotiate a new contract thus far with I Partenopei, and his current deal is due to expire at the end of the season.

The Toffees could reportedly sign Mertens for £10m – if they agree a deal before 10 January. If the Premier League side fails to get the deal over the line before that date, then they will have to negotiate an agreement with Napoli.


The 32-year-old has been a key player for Napoli in recent years, and he scored an impressive 16 goals under Ancelotti’s tutelage last season. Mertens has struggled along with the rest of his teammates this year however, and their poor showings in the league culminated in the new Everton boss being sacked by the Napoli board at the start of December.

Lorenzo Insigne
Everton’s other target, Lorenzo Insigne, is supposedly looking for a fresh challenge after spending his entire career with his boyhood club.

Le10Sport’s piece claims Ancelotti is very interested in bringing the 28-year-old to Goodison Park, as he is desperate to add some star talent to his side.


Insigne has scored only three goals this season, and the Italian international has come under heavy criticism from Napoli supporters for his poor performances, which have left the Italian club languishing in eighth place.

However, the chance of a player of Insigne’s reputation trading Napoli for a club without European football seems remote.

Europe: Ancelotti seeks Everton’s return.

…one of the greatest

Carlo Ancelotti has set his sights on taking Everton back into European competition after the Italian was appointed manager of “one of the greatest clubs in England”.

Saturday saw the Merseyside team announce that Ancelotti had become their new permanent manager on a four-and-a-half year contract.

The 60-year-old then watched from the stands at Goodison Park as Everton played out a goalless draw with Arsenal, who have appointed former Toffees favourite Mikel Arteta as their new manager.

“I’m excited to be here at one of the greatest clubs in England,” Ancelotti told the club’s in-house TV channel in his first interview since his appointment.

The draw with Arsenal left Everton 15th in the Premier League and just four points above the relegation zone.

Nevertheless Ancelotti, a three-time Champions League winning coach who was sacked by Napoli this month, said Everton should aim high.

“The ambition is for us to try to win and be competitive,” he added.

“The goal is there to reach the Champions League or Europa League. Winning honours has to be the dream for this club and for the supporters. I am here to try to do this.”

Ancelotti guided Chelsea to a league and FA Cup double in 2010 in his first spell in England.

“Our goal is to be competitive in the Premier League, to be towards the top of the table, to be competitive in Europe,” he said.


“It’s not going to happen straight away, but we have to work for this.

“To Evertonians I would like to say, stay with the team as you always do because it’s really important for the players to have your support.

“I would like to work together with the supporters. My dream is to bring success to this club.”

Ferguson to stay at club
Meanwhile Everton chairman Bill Kenwright congratulated the club’s majority shareholder, Farhad Moshiri, for bringing in a manager of Ancelotti’s standing.

The Italian’s trophy-laden CV includes stints at a clutch of Europe’s top clubs, including Juventus, AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.

“I have to take my hat off to Farhad,” said Kenwright.

“We interviewed a lot of people and Farhad was pushing for a world-class manager.

“He wants this team to be where he’s wanted it to be for three-and-a-half years. He wants this club to be winning trophies.”

Caretaker manager Duncan Ferguson will remain on Ancelotti’s staff.

The former Everton striker oversaw a win over Chelsea, draws with Manchester United and Arsenal and a League Cup loss on penalties to Leicester in his four-game spell at the helm following the sacking of Marco Silva.

Ancelotti’s first game in charge of Everton is set to be the Boxing Day clash at home to Burnley.

Everton confirms Carlo Ancelotti as new manager.

…says he is the perfect appointment

English Premiership side, Everton has confirmed Italian Carlo Ancelotti as the Club new manager.

Marcel Brands, Everton’s Director of Football, said: “Following a rigorous process conducted by all of our Directors, it is a pleasure to now welcome Carlo Ancelotti to Everton. He is one of the finest managers in world football and a proven winner, having achieved a remarkable level of success in each of Europe’s major leagues.

“He is the perfect appointment for us. He embraces our vision for the Club and we are sure that his enthusiasm to take the helm at Goodison together with his tactical abilities and well-renowned man-management will make him successful in this role.

This was a clear and exciting decision for the Board to make. It was a unanimous choice and one we were all fully united behind throughout.

Carlo has proven time and again, he knows how to build a trophy-winning side and we share the excitement of our fans at the prospect of him leading our team in the years ahead. We’re all greatly looking forward to working with him.”

Ancelotti, who recently quit Napoli, will attend today’s Premier League match against Arsenal at Goodison as a spectator with the Club’s Owner and Chairman prior to meeting the players and taking up his new role from Sunday.

Ancelotti’s first match in the dugout will be the visit of Burnley to Goodison Park on Boxing Day, the club announced.

“This is a great club with a rich history and a very passionate fan base. 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,” Ancelotti said.

Despite overseeing an upturn in form, the Scot looks set to return to his previous role in the coaching staff by Ancelotti, who recently became a free agent following his dismissal by SSC Napoli.

A number of candidates were touted for the Merseyside hotseat, but the three-time Champions League winning Italian is set to win the chase after Sky Sports revealed he is to be confirmed as the new man at the helm before the weekend.

Despite his confirmation to take place before their visit of Arsenal, it will be Ferguson who leads the team out at Goodison Park with Ancelotti to be officially presented to the media on Monday. Corriere Dello Sport claim that the deal in question will run until 2024, with his son Davide joining as part of his backroom staff.

It will mark a real coup on behalf of the Toffees once the 60-year-old is instilled, who boasts an impressive CV having won four league titles in four different countries, including the Premier League title during his spell with Chelsea.

FBL-EUR-C1-LIVERPOOL-NAPOLI
A mini-resurgence has taken place under Ferguson, but the task at hand for Ancelotti stretches beyond the previous two matches. Both the 2017/18 and 2018/19 seasons saw the Toffees finish eighth in the top-flight, but a dismal start to the current campaign has seen Everton languish dangerously above the relegation places.

Prior to Ferguson’s interim stint, Silva had guided the club to just four wins from their opening 15 league matches, this despite signing seven players over the summer transfer window.

Coincidentally, they face and Arsenal side on Saturday who are set to appoint their own new manager. Mikel Arteta will be in the dugout prior the the crucial clash, in what will be an engrossing encounter for both incoming bosses.

Napoli Gets New Coach, Trash Ancelotti As Gattuso Becomes Their New Coach.

Italian football legend, Gennaro Gattuso has been confirmed as the new coach of Serie A club Napoli following the sacking of Carlo Ancelotti.

The former Milan manager signed a six-month contract with Napoli and took training on Tuesday, less than 24 hours after Carlo Ancelotti was sacked after their Tuesday’s 4-0 victory over Genk which confirmed their place in the Champions League knockout stage.

On joining, Gattuso said: ‘The aim is to recoup points and get back into the Champions League positions.

‘We need to work hard, win back points and come through this tricky period. It’s embarrassing to see Napoli where we currently are in the table.

‘The team is aware of the difficult situation and wants to do well. I’ve been encouraged.’

Gattuso is expected to bring in his close friend and former teammate Luigi Riccio as his assistant at Napoli.

The legendary midfielder also revealed that Ancelotti spoke to him on the phone, wishing him well in his new role.

Gattuso said: ‘Carlo Ancelotti is like a father to me. He’s always been close to me and supported me. He’s won it all and I still have a lot to prove.’

Napoli’s Ancelotti sacked despite champions league wins…

Napoli have sacked manager Carlo Ancelotti less than three hours after he guided them into the Champions League knockout stages…

The Serie A club had not won in nine games in all competitions until Tuesday’s 4-0 success at home to Genk.

Ancelotti was in his second season in charge of Napoli but they sit seventh in the league after that poor run.ADVERTISEMENT

They are the only team to beat Liverpool in 90 minutes this season, defeating the Reds 2-0 in September.

Last month the manager and Napoli players were in a high-profile dispute with president Aurelio de Laurentiis.

De Laurentiis ordered the team to attend a week-long training camp but Ancelotti and his players all returned home.

Ancelotti, who won the Premier League and FA Cup Double with Chelsea in 2009-10, has been linked with the vacant managers’ jobs at Arsenal and Everton.

He is one of only three managers to win three European Cups/Champions Leagues – along with Liverpool legend Bob Paisley and current Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane.

Ancelotti won two Champions Leagues with AC Milan and one with Real Madrid, as well as domestic titles with Milan, Chelsea, Paris St-Germain and Bayern Munich.

He did not appear to know an announcement was imminent after the win over Genk, when he said: “I’ll speak to president De Laurentiis tomorrow and we’ll make the best decision for Napoli.

“As far as I’m concerned, with certain players coming back and the right conditions in place, this team can still target fourth place.

“The win tonight is a weight off our shoulders and can give the players a big boost for the future.”

But a tweet later that evening simply read:“SSC Napoli has taken the decision to part ways with first-team coach Carlo Ancelotti.

“The friendship and mutual respect between the club, president Aurelio de Laurentiis and Carlo Ancelotti remain intact.”

Reports in the Italian media suggest that Gennaro Gattuso, sacked by AC Milan at the end of last season, has been lined up as Ancelotti’s replacement
