Danny Mills has raved about Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti and emphasised just how much he believes he can transform the club. 

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former England international cited the Italian’s time at PSG as an example of the effect he can have on a side.

The 60-year-old won a league title with the French giants before leaving the club to take the Real Madrid job in 2013.

And Mills believes that Ancelotti can enact a similar building project during his time on Merseyside.

“He really has been superb,” he told Football Insider. 

“When you listen to his interviews, his calmness, he’s been there, he’s done it, he’s seen it at every pretty much every single football club. He builds projects.

“He first went into PSG and he built a project. That was what he was all about. He transformed the whole club.

“It’s not just what he does instantly, it’s what he will do over the course of time. I think he’ll be very, very effective.”

Ancelotti has already overseen a notable upturn in form since taking the helm at Goodison Park, with his side having lost just once in the eight Premier League matches he has taken charge of.

His side are now unbeaten in five games in the league, and have moved away from the brink of a relegation battle to within just five points of the top four.
