Managerial Carousel

Carlo Ancelotti surprised Everton by announcing he will leave Merseyside to return as Manager of Real Madrid in replacement of Zinedine Zidane who left the club in May. Ancelotti, who won three Champions League titles in his previous stint at the Spanish giant, led Everton to a disappointing 10th place finish in only full season heading the Toffees. Everton is said to be in talks with former Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo to replace Ancelotti. Santo was earlier rumored to be a candidate for the vacant Crystal Palace position. Tottenham Hotspur remains perhaps the highest profile current Premier League managerial vacancy. Former Spurs and current PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino has been rumored to have had discussions with the club on a possible return engagement. Antonio Conte, who recently left Inter Milan after winning Serie A, has also been reported to have interest in a Premier League return. Bruno Lage, last of Benfica, has been rumored to be the leader in the clubhouse for the vacant Wolves managerial post. Laga would seem a natural fit for a Wolves roster dominated by Portuguese players.
