Carlo Ancelotti loves his new Everton song – and can’t wait to sing it

Carlo Ancelotti claims his dream is to have Everton playing thrilling football – and start singing from the same hymn sheet to deliver trophies.

But the Toffees boss admits it won’t happen overnight as he looks to turn the Blues into entertainers.

Ancelotti will be hoping his new side can make it four wins from five Premier League games since he took charge in December when they face former manager David Moyes and West Ham this weekend.

They are looking to rid memories of their humiliating FA Cup defeat by Liverpool’s second-string side.

But Ancelotti admits their wins over Burnley, Newcastle and Brighton were effective rather than entertaining – something he wants to change.

The Italian said: “The dream is to have a team that can control the game and play fantastic football and win games with an attacking style.

“But a manager has to know the characteristics of their players and adapt a system to these characteristics.

“I would like to have a style of play which attracts the supporters and feels comfortable for the players.

“When you arrive in the middle of the season you have no time and no possibility to change a lot of things.

“The last games we did not change a lot, the most important thing in this period was to win.

“We were not in a good position but now it is a little bit better. The changes I made were not so important in this period, in my opinion.

“The fact the team showed a good spirit was the key point in [achieving] the results. The attitude of the team was good.

“In the games we played, we did not play so well but we were effective and won three times.”

Despite the FA Cup defeat by Liverpool, Everton fans are still bubbling with excitement over Ancelotti’s arrival.

The three-times Champions League winner has brought a wave of optimism back to the blue half of Merseyside in a season they’ve slipped down the table.

They’ve made the manager feel welcome with his own song already.

But they won’t get to hear crooner Ancelotti’s dulcet tones until they end their 25-year wait for silverware which can’t come this season.

“The reception I had was fantastic,” added Ancelotti.

“The fact they [Evertonians] invented this song for me was unusual but makes me feel really happy.

“I really enjoyed it. “I have to learn this song, it is not difficult.

“I like to sing – I used to sing when we won trophies. I hope to sing soon.”
