Everton great Cahill: The hug Ancelotti welcomed me back with

Everton great Tim Cahill has revealed how Carlo Ancelotti welcomed him back to the club.

Cahill admits he's pleased to see the Italian as Toffees manager.

He told Sky Sports: "I bumped into Carlo Ancelotti when I was at Finch Farm a few months back, and what a gentleman. He drove past me, he then pulled up, reversed and got out of his car and gave me a big hug. He told me I could come in whenever I wanted. That's what the club is all about.

"He's won the fans over, which is really important because they're a big part of the football club. Everton will certainly improve and I'm looking forward to seeing where he can take the club."
