The manager of Everton football club, Carlo Ancelotti has insisted that he does not want to work with players that don’t believe in his project at the club. Hence, he stressed that any player at the club that is not happy can leave the club ahead of next season.
Carlo Ancelotti has been the manager of Everton since 2019. So far this season, the Merseyside club has experienced the bad and the good sides of the season.
At the beginning of the season, the 61-year-old Italian coach and his boys were a house on fire as they enjoyed a couple of unbeaten runs that kept them at the top of the league table for a couple of days.
Before football pundits could confirm Everton as a Premier League title contender, the club’s form started deteriorating so badly that they dropped from the top four and landed even outside the top 7.
Just like many other clubs, Carlo Ancelotti and his boys have just two league games to go and their only hope is to win the games so that they can qualify for Europa League ahead of next season. However, the possibility of making it to Europe ahead of not season is very slim.
As it stands, Everton are currently sitting on the 9th spot on the league table after recording 16 wins, 8 draws, and 12 defeats in 36 games. They have recorded 56 points so far this season.
Carlo Ancelotti who has coached at the highest level in club football will lead Everton to play their 37th league game of the season against Wolves at 18:00 today, May 19. A win in the game could take them up to the 8th spot on the league table.
Ahead of the Premier League game, Ancelotti said he has told his players that he would only work with those players who are willing to play for the club.
He said: “I don’t want to have players here who are unhappy. If some players are not happy to stay where they can ask to leave.
“I want to have players that want to stay at Everton and feel part of this project.
“That is for all players. There is no player I can force to stay here. But I told them this recently. They know. If someone is not happy they have to leave.
“An unhappy player is not going to be a good part of this project.”
Meanwhile, the manager of Manchester United, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that the club might sign another striker this summer in addition to Edinson Cavani who just extended his contract with the club early this month.
While acknowledging that Manchester United are planning to strengthen their squad, Solskjaer said the availability of Cavani won’t stop the club from trying to sign another striker.
“We’re looking to strengthen the squad, of course, said Solskjaer after Cavani scored a stunning strike that earned United a point against Fulham on Tuesday. “There are many, many, many things you have to consider when you put a squad together.
“I’m not saying that if Eddie stays that means someone else in a forward position won’t come in.”
