Ancelotti: ‘Everton for the long haul’ | Football Italia

  Carlo Ancelotti confirms ‘I’d like to have a very long experience’ at Everton, where he is planning ‘an evolution, not a revolution’.

  Ancelotti has not lasted more than two years in any of his six jobs since his tenure at Milan ended in 2009, but he is hoping to buck that trend at Everton.

  “I feel part of this project, which started for me in December, and I hope it lasts for a long time,” the 61-year-old told Sky Sport Italia.

  “I’ve never had very long experiences in my career, but I’d like to have one here: Liverpool took five years to get to the top.

  “Everton want to build a new stadium and have the ambition of fighting for a place in Europe.

  “I’d like to be part of this project for a long time. Being appreciated gives me a lot of pleasure and motivation, but at the same time it also gives you a lot of responsibility.

  “You’re appreciated for what you’ve done, but you’d also like to be appreciated for what you’re going to do.

  “That’s my objective. Doing it for those who appreciate you is much more stimulating.”

  The former Napoli boss is coming to the end of his first half-season in charge of the Toffees, lifting them to safety amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

  “The balance sheet is a positive one, considering it’s been a very strange season.

  “I came here during the Christmas period with the team in trouble and then there was the pandemic.

  “One of the most positive aspects is the great welcome that the fans reserved for me, plus I have to say that I found a very organised club, with beautiful structures and a fabulous training ground.”

  Finally, Carletto was asked about Everton’s plans in the upcoming transfer window.

  “The club’s ambition is to improve and we’ll focus on the transfer window once the season finishes.

  “It’ll last until 5 October, so there will be plenty of time to improve the team. I’m not thinking of a revolution but maybe an evolution.”

Highlights: Milan 1

  Milan led Atalanta through Hakan Calhanoglu’s wonder strike, but Duvan Zapata equalised for a share of the spoils at San Siro.

  Calhanoglu hit double-figures for goals this season with a stunning free kick, curling one into the roof of Pierluigi Gollini’s net far out from the left.

  Atalanta ultimately grabbed a point as Zapata finished off from two yards out, but Gianluigi Donnarumma was on hand to save Ruslan Malinovskyi’s penalty.

Report: Verona get Cetin | Football Italia

  Hellas Verona have reportedly agreed a loan deal with an option to buy Roma defender Mert Cetin ahead of next season.

  Cetin has struggled to find space at the Giallorossi and has only played five games in Serie A since his move from Genclerbirligi last summer.

  Sky Sport Italia report that the 23-year-old will move to Verona on a loan deal for 2020-21, with an option to buy the player for €15m next summer.

  Cetin signed a five-year contract upon his arrival in the capital but seems set to move on after only one season.

  The report claims Roma will include a buy-back clause in the deal worth €15m, should the player move on a permanent deal next summer.
