Real Madrid : Carlo Ancelotti ‘accepts Brazil’s next coach’

Car­lo Ancelot­ti has been select­ed as the next man­ag­er of Brazil.

Accord­ing to jour­nal­ist Bruno Vic­ari, the Real Madrid boss, 63, has already informed some teams of the La Liga giants about his departure.

The coach will take charge of South Amer­i­ca after this season.

Nei­ther Brazil nor Ancelot­ti will offi­cial­ly announce the news, accord­ing to ESPN, “because the man­ag­er is still signed to a Span­ish club until June 2024.”

And he claims he has­n’t final­ized the deal either.

How­ev­er, he signed a three-year con­tract in the sum­mer that will see him play through to the 2026 World Cups in the Unit­ed States, Mex­i­co and Canada.

How­ev­er, per­son­al con­di­tions are still being finalized.

Ancelot­ti’s Brazil­ian play­ers in Madrid are said to have already been informed of the impend­ing signing.

And while play­ers such as Vini­cius Jr., Rodry­go and Eder Mil­i­tao are sad to see him leave the Bern­abéu, they “believe him a fit­ting name for a five-time world cham­pi­on coach”.

His inter­na­tion­al coach­ing expe­ri­ence dates back to his time as an assis­tant coach in Italy in the ear­ly 1990s.

Since then, he has coached at top Euro­pean clubs, start­ing with Reg­giana and Parma.

He has played for Juven­tus, Paris Saint-Ger­main, Bay­ern Munich, Napoli, Ever­ton, Milan, Chelsea and Madrid.

Brazil sacked Tite after being elim­i­nat­ed from the World Cup on penal­ties against Croa­t­ia in the quarter-finals.

Asked after the tour­na­ment if he would like to replace Tite, Ancelot­ti made it clear at the time that he would not.

But reports say he’s changed his mind and is about to embark on a new adven­ture on a new continent.
