CARLO ANCELOTTI says he has ‘no doubts’ about bringing Jordan Pickford back in for Everton against Manchester United.
The goalkeeper was dropped to the bench for the Toffees for the first time since his move from Sunderland yesterday afternoon.
Swede Robin Olsen started in goal for the 2-1 defeat at Newcastle.
Despite earning praise from the Blues boss, Ancelotti insisted afterwards that it would Pickford lining-up next time out against the Red Devils rather than Olsen.
He said: “The performance of Olsen was goo“He’s a good goalkeeper, he’s a goalkeeper with experience. He was in good control of the game.
“He’s a good goalkeeper, he’s a goalkeeper with experience. He was in good control of the game.
“The reaction of Jordan was the reaction of a player who understands he was not going to play today, because I explained to him really clearly that I wanted to give an opportunity for Robin to play.
“He [Pickford] will be back for the Manchester United game.”
After Olsen’s fine display, Ancelotti was asked whether rotating players would be hard for him, something he believes is not an issue.
He added: “No, absolutely not. It’s not complicated for me.
“In my career I’m used to rotating the goalkeepers. It happened in Real Madrid, in Napoli
“There is a possibility to rotate them. It will not be the last time.
“He can play in the Premier League, in the cup, he’s a goalkeeper that everyone one of us has trust in.
“It doesn’t mean that you don’t have trust in Jordan, we have a lot of trust in Jordan. No doubt for this.”
