Spanish giants Real Madrid have appointed Carlo Ancelotti as their new manager.

Los Blancos recently parted ways with Zinedine Zidane, who left the 13-time European champions for the second time in his managerial career.

The Florentino Perez-led board has opted for the Italian to replace Zidane.

“Real Madrid announces that Carlo Ancelotti will be the club’s first-team coach for the next three seasons,” the club announced via a statement.

“The ceremonial signing of the contract will take place tomorrow with club president Florentino PĂ©rez at Real Madrid City, after which Ancelotti will address the media from 6pm (CET) in an online press conference.”

Ancelotti, who was the Everton manager in the just ended season, left the Spanish giants at the beginning of the 2014/15 season, having led the club to their 10th European crown in Lisbon the previous year.
