March 26, (THEWILL) – Brazil’s football team is on the hunt for their next permanent manager and the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF), has expressed interest in hiring Real Madrid coach, Carlo Ancelotti, for the job.
CBF president, Ednaldo Rodrigues, was quoted as saying that Ancelotti was “unanimously respected among players” and “the ideal candidate” for the role. Ancelotti has been linked with the vacant Brazil coaching job in recent weeks, and his impressive resume includes multiple domestic and international titles.
Rodrigues praised Ancelotti’s work ethic and the affection Brazilian fans have for him, saying: “Everywhere I go in Brazil, in every stadium, he is the first name the supporters ask me about.” The national team is currently under the temporary leadership of Mano Menezes after Tite left his post at the end of 2022.
Brazil’s recent performances have been lacklustre, failing to make an impact in the 2022 FIFA World Cup and losing to Morocco in a recent friendly. With Ancelotti’s proven track record, the CBF is hopeful that he can help turn the team’s fortunes around.
“Let’s have faith in God, wait for the appropriate time and we’ll see if we can make it happen as we look for the new coach of the Brazilian national team,” Rodrigues remarked.
