Ancelotti Responds To 'Bullsh*t' Rumours

Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti has once again responded to being linked with Real Madrid star Isco, and was a lot more direct this time around.

With the Italian tactician having lured James Rodriguez to Goodison Park ahead of this season, the former Real boss has again been linked with a player he once managed at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Isco has struggled for form and found himself down the pecking order under Zinedine Zidane in Madrid, which seemingly sparked rumours that Ancelotti was ready to swoop for the player's services, but according to the Toffees boss himself, there is nothing to the speculation.

"It is not true that I am behind Isco. We haven't started thinking about the team for the January market. So those comments are, as they say here, bullsh*t... (laughs)," he told DIRECTV SportCo.

Ancelotti signed Rodriguez for Real back in 2014, and it is claimed that he also had a hand in luring Isco to Los Blancos the year prior.
