Everton fans have hit back at former Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan after he questioned whether Carlo Ancelotti’s style of football would suit the Toffees.
Does Carlo Ancelotti's style of football suit Everton?
The 60-year-old head coach has been without a club since he was sacked by former club Napoli following their 4-0 win against Belgian side Genk in the Champions League.
Sky Sports revealed that the three-time Champions League winner will be confirmed as Everton manager before the weekend, taking over from caretaker manager Duncan Ferguson, who took charge of last night’s Carabao Cup tie against Leicester City.
“Ancelotti’s a top manager.” 👏
“It is a significant move by Everton. He’ll put the board under pressure.” 💷

Jordan, speaking on talkSPORT, described the approach from Everton as “significant”, but he also added that he was not sure if his “brand of football” entirely suited the club.
Supporters were critical of Jordan’s remarks and made their feelings clear on social media. One fan said that if a top manager is available, then that is good enough for him, regardless of the brand.
