Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti is already eyeing an extended stay at Goodison Park although he has only signed a lengthy contract in December.
The Italian is contracted with the Premier League club until the summer of 2024 but the 60-year-old has ambitions for that spell to be longer as by then he expects the Toffees to be competing for trophies and regularly playing in Europe.
Speaking to evertonfc.com, the Toffees boss said:
“I signed a four-and-a-half-year deal and I would like to finish my contract, to stay here, to do my best.
“And after that, if there is a possibility to continue, I would like to stay more. The ambition and idea is to stay longer.
“The club has big ambitions to be competitive in the Premier League and in Europe. We are working for this.
“The base of the squad is very good. We have some young players that are growing. Year-by-year, I think we are going to improve.”
And when asked where he saw Everton being in three years, Ancelotti responded:
“I think I see Everton (towards) the top of the table, fighting for some titles, fighting to be competitive in Europe.”
Everton were in the bottom three at the beginning of December after sacking Marco Silva, however the club are currentlywithin five points of the Champions League places.
