Carlo Ancelotti's first press conference as Everton manager will take place at 10am on Monday at Goodison Park.

The biggest managerial appointment in the Blues 141-year history was confirmed just 70 minutes before kick-off ahead of Everton's 0-0 draw with Arsenal in the Premier League.

The Italian – who has won a World Club Cup, three Champions Leagues, domestic titles in Italy, England, France and Germany plus cups in Italy, England and Spain among a treasure trove of some 20 major honours over his 24-year coaching career – was already en route to L4 having travelled up from London by train and took his place in the directors box before kick-off.

Ancelotti , 60, who has signed a four-and-a-half year deal, was seen speaking to director of football Marcel Brands ahead of the game and then sat in between majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri and chairman Bill Kenwright during the match itself.

Duncan Ferguson , whose four match tenure as caretaker manager now ends, confirmed that Ancelotti went into the Everton dressing room after the game to deliver “a lovely speech” and with the club stating that he will take up his new role today, he will face the media for the first time as Blues boss at 10am on Monday.

The event will also serve as the pre-match press conference for the Boxing Day fixture against Burnley at Goodison Park which will be Ancelotti's first match in the dugout.
