“While I have enjoyed being at Everton I have been presented with an unexpected opportunity which I believe is the right move for me and my family at this time,” he added in a statement published on Everton’s website.

Real Madrid announced that they would begin the process of appointment soon and the details of the same will be shared in due course. Madrid won the Champions trophy three times under Zinedine Zidane but had a disappointing 2020-2021 season, having finished without a singly trophy. They finished second in La Liga behind Atletico Madrid. They also stumbled to defeat in the semi-final of the Champions League against Chelsea. This was the first instance where the 13 times European Champions failed to win a single trophy in 11 seasons.

The 61-year-old is one of three coaches, along with former Liverpool manager Bob Paisley and Zidane, who have won the European Cup or Champions League three times. Carlo Ancelotti also led AC Milan to glory in 2003 and 2007. He has league titles in four different countries at Milan, Chelsea, Paris St Germain and Bayern Munich over a 26-year managerial career.
