Everton keeping coach Kelly happy being part of Ancelotti staff

Everton goalkeeping coach Alan Kelly has enjoyed working with manager Carlo Ancelotti this past season.

Ancelotti took charge before Christmas and has big ambitions for the club.

Kelly told the club's website: "Carlo is wonderful to work with, as are the staff around him.

"They are all very engaging and approachable. It's been a great experience.

"Before Carlo came in, I'd read his book and I was telling people, 'You've got to read this book, it's absolutely fantastic'.

"There's so much wisdom in it. You try to take little snippets and think, 'How can I build this into my daily life?'

"Never mind as a coach, but as a person as well. Everything you read about the man is true in life as well."
