Will Ancelotti stay at Everton beyond 2024?
The article also provided information about how Ancelotti views his future at Goodison Park. It stated that while Ancelotti’s current contract at Everton runs out in the year 2024, he has privately hinted that he would be open to staying at the club for longer, if he succeeds in keeping the side competitive at a high level.
The piece stated ‘Although the Everton manager’s contract is not up until 2024, privately he has already hinted he would like to stay for longer, provided he feels can help the team remain competitive.’
The article also suggested that Ancelotti is very comfortable at Everton and he considers them to be a ‘family’ club and not a ‘corporate’ club like Real Madrid or Chelsea.
Ancelotti’s stay may only help Everton improve
As things stand, Everton have scored the fourth-highest number of goals in the Premier League this season. They have also conceded 19 goals – as many as Liverpool and two less than third-placed Manchester United (as per FBRef).
This suggests that the Toffees have been pretty good in the goalscoring department and in the defensive department too. Under Ancelotti, Everton have had a win rate of 50 per cent and only five Premier League teams have had a better points total since the Italian’s arrival (as per the Athletic).
Clearly, Everton have done pretty well under Ancelotti and if stays for longer, they might just improve further.
