Everton: Fans slam ‘preposterous’ Kenwright tale about Carlo Ancelotti

Everton: Fans slam ‘preposterous’ Kenwright tale about Carlo Ancelotti - Everton

According to quotes from the Liverpool Echo [19:38], Everton chairman Bill Kenwright claimed at the club’s general meeting on Tuesday evening that manager Carlo Ancelotti phoned him after the Italian took charge of his first match at Goodison Park and claimed he would ‘never experience anything like that’ walking on to a football pitch – with supporters having their reservations over the ‘preposterous‘ story. 

Ancelotti, who took charge of the club just before Christmas, replacing the previously sacked Marco Silva, won his first game 1-0 at home to Burnley courtesy of a dramatic late header from Dominic Calvert-Lewin – with the former AC Milan boss allegedly phoning Kenwright in praise over the atmosphere.

“He told me he’d spoken to Carlo, and he instantly said it sounded great. We knew he wanted to come to Everton. “I’m sure he won’t mind me saying he was knocked out by his first arrival at Goodison Park.

“He phoned me after the next game and said he’d never experience anything like that when walking onto a football pitch.

While this story doesn’t seem too far fetched, some Toffees supporters have their reservations given the chairman’s past antics, taking to Twitter and dismissing the tale entirely. Since taking charge, Ancelotti has won three out of his last four league matches, potentially being the start of an uphill climb despite a dramatic fall-out following the FA Cup loss to Liverpool.
