Carlo Ancelotti, Real Madrid

Brazil’s recent loss to Morocco (1-2) has raised even more uncertainty around the situation of Ramon Menezes, current interim coach. The CBF (Brazilian federation) is in full search of a new technician, capable of taking the reins of the national team. Among the names mentioned, that of Carlo Ancelotti, currently at the head of Real Madrid.

According to the AS newspaper, several national team players, such as Vinicius, Casemiro and Militao, support the interest in Ancelotti. Ederson, the Brazilian goalkeeper, even confirmed in a press conference before the game against Morocco that the chances of welcoming the Madrid technician were high.

Ferreira, Guardiola, Mourinho… Other rumors circulated

Ednaldo Rodrigues, president of the CBF, said recently on ESPN that he hoped to announce the new coach before the June FIFA date. However, he does not rule out the possibility of postponing this announcement. A meeting could be quickly scheduled between the boss of the CBF and Florentino Perez, president of Real Madrid. Ednaldo Rodrigues would like to meet the merengue leader, as well as Carlo Ancelotti. The federation could wait until the end of the European season to formalize the arrival of the new coach.

Other names have circulated in recent weeks, such as those of Abel Ferreira, Pep Guardiola or José Mourinho. But Carlo Ancelotti seems to have the right profile.

In addition to having obtained impressive results with the Madrid team (69 wins, 14 draws and 16 defeats, a success in the Champions League, since his return). The Italian has already announced that he wants to end his career as a club manager. The native of Reggiolo could take on an intermediate role, less time-consuming outside the final stages. Carlo Ancelotti would notably be able to bring the defensive rigor that the Seleçao lack.
