Carlo Ancelotti has outlined his future ambitions with Everton while suggesting that he feels much appreciated at the club.

The scenario at Everton screamed for change under the guidance of Marco Silva as they were just four points outside of the relegation zone at one point earlier in the season.

Enter Carlo Ancelotti. Ancelotti tweaked the team’s playing style by changing formation and tactics and it quickly bore fruits as Everton ended their three-game winless run against Burnley in his first match in-charge.

The Italian tactician has enjoyed immense success in his managerial career with the likes of Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain. However, he has never managed a club for more than two seasons, with the exception of AC Milan.

But it seems Everton is increasingly growing on him and he recently expressed his desire to continue the current project for a long time.

“I’ve never had very long experiences in my career, but I’d like to have one here,” said Ancelotti, as Football Italia reports.

“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. Doing it for those who appreciate you is much more stimulating.”
