Carlo Ancelotti Files Unprecedented Lawsuit Against Everton Football Club

Carlo Ancelotti, who departed from Everton to join Real Madrid two years ago, is taking legal action against his former club in the High Court of London.

The Italian manager unexpectedly left Everton after completing only 18 months into his contract to make his return to the Bernabeu.

Ancelotti’s legal action against Everton, as indicated in court records, pertains to “general commercial contracts and arrangements.”

However, no additional specifics about the lawsuit have been provided.

The suit was filed on Friday, and Ancelotti’s lawyers have declined to comment on the matter. The Guardian attempted to reach out to Everton for a response but did not receive any answers.

In December 2019, Carlo Ancelotti’s appointment as the manager of Everton was seen as a significant achievement for owner Farhad Moshiri. He took over the position from Marco Silva, who had been dismissed just three weeks earlier.

Ancelotti’s tenure began well, with Everton finishing 12th in the league in his first season. By Boxing Day of the following season, the team had risen to second place. However, their performance deteriorated, and they ultimately ended the season in 10th place.

Everton and their fans were hopeful for further progress and rebuilding during the summer of 2021.

However, their aspirations were dashed when Ancelotti announced that he would be heeding the call from his former club, Real Madrid, and returning to manage them once again.

The choice of the 64-year-old to take legal action against his previous employers adds more stress to the struggling club, which recently escaped demotion from the Premier League by a narrow margin.

Although they managed to avoid relegation on the last day of the season, the Toffees are currently entangled in various other problems.

On Monday, the club made an announcement stating that three key individuals, namely chief executive Denise Barrett-Baxendale, chief finance and strategy officer Grant Ingles, and non-executive director Graeme Sharp, have departed from their positions.

A statement read: “The outgoing directors have worked tirelessly over recent months to assist with the preparation for a transition to a new board. The club is very appreciative of this generous accommodation, which is both characteristic of them, and entirely in the spirit of the best values of our club.”
