The Brazilian national soccer team is aiming for Carlo Ancelotti (Real Madrid) as the next head coach.
Brazilian media ‘UOL Esporte’ reported on the 12th (Korean time), “The Brazilian Football Federation (CBF) plans to appoint a new coach to focus on the 2026 World Cup instead of Chichi.”
Brazil was considered a strong candidate to win this World Cup, but on the 11th, in the quarterfinals of the 2022 Qatar World Cup, they lost to Croatia after a penalty shootout, and their advance to the semifinals was frustrated.
After being knocked out in the quarterfinals, Brazilian coach Chichi publicly announced his intention to resign at a 메이저놀이터 press conference, saying, “Even if Brazil won the World Cup, I was thinking of resigning as coach.”
Regarding the position of Brazil’s next head coach, the media said, “The Brazilian Football Association has included Pep Guardiola (Manchester City), who initially showed interest in the position of manager of the Brazilian national team, as a candidate for the next manager.”
“However, when Guardiola extended his contract with Manchester City last month until June 2025, the association abolished the plan to appoint Guardiola as manager,” he added.
In addition, “As the appointment of Guardiola was over, the association contacted Ancelotti,” he said. “Ancelotti was open to negotiations for the Brazilian coaching position, but instead conveyed that he intends to finish the season at Real.”
“If Ancelotti accepts the appointment as Brazil national team coach in June 2023, the association will have to find an interim coach to take charge of the A-match between March and April 2023,” he added.
When Ancelotti returned to Real last summer, he signed a contract until June 2024.
Ancelotti, who returned to Real after six years, showed off a splendid comeback ceremony by winning La Liga and UEFA Champions League last season.
Under Ancelotti’s guidance, Vinicius Junior, Rodrygo and Eder Militao have become key players in the Brazilian national team, and with them, Ancelotti is aiming to win the league and Champions League again this season.
