Carlo Ancelotti has moved quickly to pour cold water on rumoured links with the vacant manager position at Goodison Park. The Italian was dismissed by Napoli earlier this week following a souring of relations with president Aurelio de Laurentiis.
“It’s depressing,” he told Soccer on Sunday. “Everton — can you believe this shit? You work hard all your career, and then you’re linked with Everton. Who am I, David fucking Moyes? I’ll take a toaster into the bath before I lower myself to managing Everton.”
“Why Everton?” said the Italian. “Why not Aston Villa, or The Dog & Duck? If I’m going to humiliate myself, there’s half a dozen Mickey Mouse outfits nearly as embarrassing as Everton. Maybe more.”
“Everton?” he added. “Fuck me. A new low.”
