Everton boss, Carlos Ancelotti says it will be an “emotional moment” for him when he leads his team to his former club, Chelsea on Sunday.
The Italian spent two seasons at Stamford Bridge, winning the Premier League and FA Cup Double in 2009-10.
He was sacked after finishing second in the league in 2010-11.
“I have fantastic memories from the period I was there. I had two unbelievable seasons and I’m really excited to go back,” he said.
Everton who are 11th in premier league will face fourth placed Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea boss, Frank Lampard said his former coach was a gentleman.
“A very good one. He’s very well respected in-house and by the fans. He is a gentleman, a fantastic manager. It was a good season under him.
“He’s a great man-manager. On a personal level, he’s great at striking up relationships. He’s good tactically and has a great manner. I kept in touch with him now and again.”
Ancelotti will take his place in the away dugout having avoided a touchline ban following his red card in the 1-1 draw at home to Manchester United on Sunday.
“I don’t want to look back. I had to pay a fine, it was not cheap. I’m looking forward to Stamford Bridge,” Ancelotti said.
Recall that FrujuSports had reported that he escaped FA ban after accepting misconduct charge.
