New Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti sets out early goals

New Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti was reluctant to set any lofty goals at today's presentation media conference.

The Italian revealed there's been no big targets demanded by his board.

On his ambitions for the club in the long term, Ancelotti said: "To improve our table position. To try to be closer to the top, compared to the bottom, that's it.

"Our goal is to play better football. I saw the last four games, Duncan has done a fantastic job. The team showed fantastic spirit against Chelsea United Leicester and arsenal.

"After that we have to try and play attractive football. I saw how the supporters pushed the team forward. They want to see offensive football. I would like to play a good style of football, I don't know If I will be able to but I'll try.

"We want to be ambitious and to be competitive. Europe here could be good."
