Since Italian Carlo Ancelotti took over from Everton, in the Premier League last December, the team has earned more points than any other team in the tournament, except for Liverpool, who are at the forefront.
Because of 17 points earned during this period, Everton climbed to seventh place among the twenty championship teams, which enhances his chance to qualify for the European League, while only five points behind fourth-placed Chelsea, the last qualifying center for the Champions League.
When Ancelotti was appointed to the helm of the technical staff, many, including several fans of the team, questioned the ability of the veteran Italian coach to fulfill this task.
They said that despite Ancelotti’s experience and winning the Champions League three times, he achieved these titles with Milan and Real Madrid and won the Premier League with Chelsea and that he thus demonstrated the success of his training capabilities with the established big teams and not in building modest teams, developing them and leading them to success.
But in reality, Ancelotti’s breakthrough came in the world of training when he turned Milan, the modest performer, into a European champion without many changes in the squad, by applying correct training methods and principles that succeeded in producing the best of the squad better than his predecessors.
Currently, Everton is nowhere near to be present in the league. And if the team contracts with some important additions during the summer, Ancelotti may lead to greater success.
