Carlo Ancelotti became the first manager to win the league in all five of Europe's major leagues as Real Madrid beat Espanyol 4-0 to win La Liga.

Ancelotti went to Real Madrid after he seemed to give up on his avowed mission to make Everton great again, watching passively from the touchline as they slipped from top of the Premier League in October 2020 to finish 12th at the end of last season before he abruptly jumped off the sinking ship.

Restrictions from the Covid pandemic had largely stripped Goodison of any fans during Ancelotti's final ill-fated campaign, which was soured perhaps terminally by a nasty burglary of his house in Crosby in February.
