(SOUNDBITE) (English) EVERTON MANAGER CARLO ANCELOTTI SAYING: "The fact that the club wants to build a new stadium that means that they have a clear idea how to improve and to have success and so it takes time, I don't know how long, of course for me it could be good to be here when the new stadium will be open and so this is what attracted me." STORY: Everton's ambition to be among the Premier League's elite is what convinced new manager Carlo Ancelotti to take up the role at the Merseyside club, the Italian said on Monday (December 23).

Ancelotti, one of Europe's most successful coaches who also managed Chelsea in England, left Napoli this month and replaced Portuguese Marco Silva who was sacked after a 5-2 loss to local rivals Liverpool left them in the relegation zone.

Everton, now 15th after finding a measure of stability under interim boss Duncan Ferguson, submitted a planning application for their proposed new 52,000-seater Bramley-Moore Dock stadium on Monday.

Ancelotti, who has won titles with European heavyweights such as AC Milan and Real Madrid, outlined his long-term plan to get Everton playing football that would delight the club's supporters.
