LAGOS, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA) – Carlo Ancelotti, Real Madrid head coach, has filed a lawsuit against Everton at London’s high court.
The lawsuit, which reportedly refers to “general commercial contracts and arrangements,” was sent by Ancelotti’s attorneys to the Premier League club late on Friday, according to The Guardian.
Even though the claim is scheduled to be heard in the commercial court, no additional information is available as of this writing.
Before departing Goodison Park to rejoin Real Madrid in 2021, Ancelotti, a former Everton manager, was in command there for 18 months between 2019 and 2021.
There have been no comments from the Italian, his attorneys, or Everton to date.
This allegation will only put additional pressure on Everton, who has already been dealing with financial difficulties as they built a new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock during the past four seasons.
The Toffees’ on-field performance has also been impacted by it; over the past two seasons, the team has been within a whisker of being relegated from the Premier League.
