Everton vacancy

You’ve got to feel a bit sorry for them.

The Ev have lost their manager, their most promising appointment in years, to Real Madrid.

Carlo Ancelotti came in 18 months ago and with him came a wave of optimism.

Fans and pundits alike thought he could instigate real change at Goodison Park, then…poof. He’s gone.

Rafa Benitez is thought to be under consideration as a candidate whilst Steven Gerrard’s name was also mentioned according to The Athletic.

Alvaro Arbeloa to join Carlo Ancelotti

The Italian manager is assembling his staff.

According to Marca, Alvaro Arbeloa could join Carlo Ancelotti on the Real Madrid coaching team.

The right back spent two seasons at Anfield before joining Los Blancos for the next seven years of his career.

He was a member of the Real Madrid side which won the Champions League under Carlo Ancelotti in 2014.

What RTK has to say

It’s good to see Arby taking his steps into the coaching world.

He was a helluva player, it’s a shame we only had him for two seasons.

Arbeloa has been horrendously underrated for me, he enjoyed an incredibly successful career.

Hopefully we see him make it into the dugout one day.
