Continuing his examination of Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti's 25-year coaching career, Chris Beesley looks at the Blues boss' time in charge at the Parc des Princes.

When we think of Paris St Germain now, their mega-money signings of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe come to mind but the stars at the petrodollar-fuelled outfit weren't twinkling anywhere near as brightly when Carlo Ancelotti first arrived in the 'City of Lights'.

“I think it was a missed rendezvous for PSG and Carlo.



As the two most-expensive football transfers of all-time to date, Neymar and Mbappe cost PSG a cool €357million between them and although Qatar Sports Investments were already in charge in the French capital during Ancelotti's reign, the global icons had not yet started to arrive and it was the Italian himself who was arguably their first A-list signing.

They now think that had that kind of guy with Carlo and they missed their chance to work with him for longer.” The changing of the goalposts from the club's owners seemed to hit Ancelotti hard and having been told he would be expected to produce immediate results it seems that he thought he may as well go and work at the top end of such a pressure cooker environment as he sought PSG's position to take up a new post at the end of the 2012/13 season.

“When PSG finished Ancelotti's first season in second place, many people said it was a mistake to fire Kombouaré.

“Recently, Ibrahimovic claimed that he'd never wanted to go to Paris but I think that getting him there and the other big names was thanks to the work of Leonardo but also having a big name coach like Carlo.
