Fan View: “Ancelotti again? – Nigerian fans divided over Italian’s return to Real Madrid
Appointment of the Italian tactician as Los Blancos boss drew mixed reactions from La Liga loyalists
The reappointment of Carlo Ancelotti at the head of Real Madrid has divided Nigerian fans.
Following the departure of Zinedine Zidane as Los Blancos boss, the veteran Italian tactician was brought back to the squad of the Spanish elite division.
Prior to the announcement, Ancelotti was manager of Premier League team Everton.
The former AC Milan and Chelsea blunder returns to the club where he enjoyed significant success between 2013 and 2015.
As well as leading the Santiago Bernabeu giants to their 10th European triumph in 2014, they also won the Copa del Rey that season and won the UEFA Super Cup and the Fifa Club World Cup.
While some Nigerian fans have taken to social media to celebrate the return of the 61-year-old, some have questioned the club’s hierarchy decision.
