Since joining the club at the end of 2019, Carlo Ancelotti has started to help Everton progress.

The Italian comes with a fantastic track record from previous clubs, having won 21 major honours as a coach.

There is plenty of hope for the club to start progressing under Ancelotti with him more than qualified to help.

However, according to BT Sport pundit Chris Sutton, Everton don’t have the ‘ingredients’ to progress.

On BBC 5 Live Sport, as cited by HITC, Sutton stated that the club won’t progress under Ancelotti.

The pundit referenced making a lasagna as a metaphor for Everton’s problem under the Italian.

“They have a guy in Carlo Ancelotti,” said Sutton. “You can be the best chef in the world at cooking lasagne, if you don’t have the right ingredients, the right mince, the right pasta sheets or the right tomatoes then you’re not going to make the best lasagne. And that’s Ancelotti’s problem.”.
