Real Madrid confirm new manager


Real Madrid have announced their new manager just a few days after Zinedine Zidane stepped down.

There will be a familiar face in the Spanish capital next season after the club confirmed the appointment of Carlo Ancelotti.

The Italian spent a season-and-a-half with Premier League outfit Everton, but has now decided to return to the Santiago Bernabeu.

Real statement:

Real Madrid C. F. announces that Carlo Ancelotti will be the club's first-team coach for the next three seasons.

The ceremonial signing of the contract will take place tomorrow with club president Florentino Pérez at Real Madrid City, after which Ancelotti will address the media from 6pm (CET) in an online press conference.

During his first spell with Los Blancos, Ancelotti led the club to a UEFA Champions League title, the Copa del Rey, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup.
