Carlo Ancelotti Refutes Claims of Coaching Brazil

Must read

By Daniel Edu

Real Madrid manager, Carlo Ancelotti, has surprised Brazilian football enthusiasts by dismissing rumors of an agreement for him to become the head coach of Brazil’s national team.

Brazil has been without a head coach since Tite’s departure following their quarterfinal loss to Croatia in the 2022 Qatar World Cup. Ramon Menezes, the coach of Brazil’s under-20s team, has been handling the team during friendlies since then.

Despite ongoing speculations that Ancelotti would leave Real Madrid to coach Brazil, especially after winning the 2021-2022 UEFA Champions League title with the Spanish club, Ancelotti has consistently stated that he won’t leave Real Madrid unless the club decides to terminate his contract. As of now, Real Madrid has not renewed his contract, which is set to expire at the end of the season, fueling rumors that Ancelotti might take over as the head coach of Brazil’s national team in 2024.

Earlier this year, the president of the Brazilian Football Confederation, Ednaldo Rodrigues, confirmed that Ancelotti would lead Brazil in the Copa America in June 2024. Rodrigues also mentioned that Fernando Diniz would oversee both the women’s senior team and the men’s senior team until Ancelotti assumes his role in 2024.

However, in a recent statement, Ancelotti refuted these claims, stating that there is no agreement between him and Brazil. He asserted his contentment with Real Madrid, saying, “Agreement with Brazil? It’s all rumors and speculation. I feel very good at Real Madrid as things stand. We’ve had an excellent start to the season, and we hope to maintain this level.”
