Former Everton striker Marcus Bent has exclusively told Football FanCast that he’s been reliably informed that Carlo Ancelotti won’t be tempted by the Tottenham job.
Spurs remain in search for someone to replace Jose Mourinho following his departure last month, and the Italian’s name has been ambitiously thrown into the ring.
Reports earlier this year suggested that Ancelotti has admirers at Tottenham but Bent squashed any rumours of the former Chelsea manager taking over in north London.
The 61-year-old has only been in the Goodison Park hot seat for around 18 months, and has improved the squad quite considerably, although Everton’s dreadful home form is likely to cost them a place in Europe next season.
The Toffees have produced some excellent results on the road at Arsenal and West Ham, but their struggles at Goodison Park, most notably the defeat to Sheffield United, have left their destiny out of their own hands heading into the final few fixtures.
But regardless of whether Everton qualify for Europe, Bent told Football FanCast that he’s confident that Ancelotti will be sticking around:
“I spoke to my contacts at Everton, and they said he doesn’t seem the type to walk away from a contract.
“The money he is going to get to spend and the new stadium… I don’t think he will be going to Tottenham.”
