Real Madrid’s decision to re-hire Ancelotti - Desperation or masterclass?

When news broke out that neither Antonio Conte nor Raul Gonzalez would be getting the Real Madrid job, pundits were left confused for many reasons as one would have thought the ship has sailed beyond Carlo Ancelotti for the Los Blancos but what can’t happen in football does not exist.

Mauricio Pochettino was considered and as a matter of the fact he was leading the race but Leonardo will not let him leave PSG.

Despite how much his former club Tottenham Hotspur want his return, for reasons best known to Daniel Levy alone, Real Madrid had to look elsewhere but Ancelotti?

The well-travelled Italian will be unveiled on Wednesday and one question that will certainly be on the cards of every journalist in the room will be that of what becomes of Everton’s project which he started with James Rodriguez, Allan and Doucoure?

Every career comes with a level of selfishness, you care about yourself and your happiness which is fine, but for a player like James Rodriguez that he sold the great idea to and he bought it, will he now take him back to Real Madrid where he was largely a misfit?

The Colombian followed Ancelotti to Bayern Munich, he tried frantically to add him to his PSG squad back then fruitlessly, can we now expect him to take him along to Real Madrid in his second coming at the Santiago Bernabeu?

The 61-year-old Ancelotti replaces his former assistant who walked away from the job last week, knowing that being Real Madrid head coach comes with lots of peculiarities and demands, you either win or leave, no two ways about it.

But is Ancelotti the best option in the market for Real Madrid? 

You can’t deny the veteran tactician of his class, but what more does he has to prove or offer at the highest level?

Looking back at the just-concluded season in the Premier League where he and Everton had top four within their grasps for so long but eventually finished behind Arsenal who had their most miserable season ever;

He had money to spend, he got his players yet fell short of the minimum requirements, beating Liverpool at Anfield must be the highlight of his season.

Also, his second coming in England after managing Chelsea in 2010, leading them to the title and leaving the next season after poor results.

Ancelotti is aware of the standards at Real Madrid, Zidane left off the back of a season where he finished second in the league and made it to the semifinal of the Champions League, almost is not enough at Real Madrid.

"I would like to thank the board of directors, the players, and the Evertonians for the tremendous support they have all given me during my time at the club," Ancelotti said in an official statement.

"I have complete respect for everyone associated with Everton and hope they can achieve the exciting opportunities they have in front of them.

Ancelotti has won the title in the Serie A, Bundesliga, Ligue 1 and the Premier League, is this personal to him as an unfinished business or Real Madrid are just desperate? 

Time will tell as he begins his second spell at the Santiago Bernabeu.
