Carlo Ancelotti clears the air on his appointment with Brazil


Real Madrid's manager, Carlo Ancelotti has broken silence about the news confirming that he has signed a deal with the Brazilian national team.

The Italian was speaking in an interview with Rai Radio 1 about his possible arrival in the Brazilian national team at the end of this season. The Italian, despite highlighting that he is comfortable at Real Madrid, did not deny that he has agreed a deal to coach the Samba boys.

"Agreement with Brazil? "They are rumours, links… I feel very good at Real Madrid as things are. We started our season excellently and we hope to continue at the same level,” he added, making it clear that he is very happy with the results so far."

Recall that the Brazilian FA released a statement in July 2023 before the start of the 2023/24 season that Ancelotti will resume his coaching role with the Brazilian national team.

The head coach of Fluminense, Fernando Diniz is currently in charge of the team, taking over from Brazil's U-20 manager Ramon Menezes, who lost two out of three friendly matches earlier this year as interim coach. Diniz will keep his job at Fluminense and join Brazil only for the World Cup qualifiers. Ancelotti is expected to be the coach of Brazil ahead of the 2024 Copa America and the 2026 FIFA World Cup.

This is the first time the 64-year-old will take charge of the national team for the first time in his coaching career. He replaces Tite who left the position after a quarter-finals defeat to Croatia at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
