Liverpool City Council unanimously approved Everton’s application for their proposed new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock on Tuesday morning.


It is anticipated that the stadium could be open by 2025 and Everton could also have a new boss at the helm by then, with Ancelotti’s current stint set to end in the summer of 2024.



However, the Italian has expressed his ambition to be the one who leads the Toffees out at the new stadium, as he feels it would be a great achievement for him.


Ancelotti added that if he remains at Goodison Park for the entirety of his term, it would likely mean he has done a good job at the club, which could result in a contract extension and stressed he would like to stay on Merseyside as long as possible.



Asked whether he would like to lead Everton out at the new stadium, Ancelotti told a press conference: “I would like to be there when the new stadium opens, it will be a good achievement for me.


“I think to finish the contract at 2024 means you did a good job and when you do a good job the contract will not be stopped in 2024.



“I think it will continue.


“So, for sure, the time that I have been spending here, almost one year, I feel good.


“So, I would like to stay as long as possible.”


Having arrived at Everton in December 2019, Ancelotti has managed to take them from a relegation threatened side to European spot hopefuls in just over a year in charge.
