Journalist angered by Carlo Ancelotti social media post after Everton exit
Daily Mail journalist Mike Keegan has hit out at Carlo Ancelotti’s message to Real Madrid fans after his exit from Everton on Tuesday.
The Italian tactician secured a shock return back to the giant Spanish capital club after just 18 months spent on Merseyside.
Ancelotti didn’t take long to issue a rallying cry to supporters of his new side, professing his thanks on his personal Twitter profile and declaring that he would “continue to make this club the best in the world.”
Keegan quote-tweeted Ancelotti’s message and wrote: “Is it just me that gets wound up by this claptrap? You’ve just shafted a magnificent club whose long-suffering, loyal fans deserve so much better.
“Pipe down for a while, ffs.”

The world of football has changed immeasurably over the past decade or so and loyalty is a trait that is starting to become obsolete in the profession.
Now, many managers, just like players, can up and leave their club for the next big thing without much of a thought for the people they are leaving behind.
Ancelotti did bid his farewells to Everton supporters on social media, but within an hour of this heartfelt message he followed it up with “Hala Madrid”.
We don’t know whether it was really Ancelotti typing those out on his phone or a well-paid social media manager on his behalf, but it does show that people in football are quick to move on without a moment’s hesitation.
Should we be surprised anymore? Probably not, but one can understand Keegan’s frustrations that Everton supporters look to have been dumped by the wayside by Ancelotti and his camp.
It’s a source of frustration for us all but dwelling on his departure does little to quell the anger and bitterness.
Hopefully, the club acts fast to appoint a new manager and get smiles back on our faces as soon as possible so we can forget all about the Ancelotti episode.
