Real Madrid Reunited with former boss
James Rodriguez has admitted that Carlo Ancelotti played a big part in his move to Everton from Real Madrid.
The Colombian links up with his former coach at Los Blancos and Bayern Munich at Goodison Park.
“I am really, really happy to be at this great club, a club with so much history, and here with a coach who knows me really well,” James told Everton’s official website.
“I’m convinced, with Carlo and his technical staff, we can achieve big things and one of the big reasons [I signed] was the presence of Carlo Ancelotti.
“I have enjoyed some great times with him previously at two different clubs. That was a massive reason to come here.”
