Real Madrid manager, Carlo Ancelotti has left football enthusiasts in Brazil stunned as he insisted that there is no agreement in place for him to be the head coach of the country.

Brazil has been without a head coach since Tite left the team after their quarterfinal loss to Croatia in the 2022 Qatar World Cup. Since then, Brazil under-20s coach Ramon Menezes has been handling the team during friendlies.

Since Tite’s departure in 2022, there have been a series of speculations that Carlo Ancelotti would leave Real Madrid to coach Brazil, especially after winning the 2021-2022 UEFA Champions League title for the Spanish giants.

Even though Ancelotti has always insisted that he wouldn’t leave Real Madrid until the Spanish giants decide to sack him, the side are yet to renew his contract which will expire at the end of this season.

This scenario has kept the rumour going that Ancelotti would become the head coach of Brazil’s national team in 2024.

Amidst that, the president of the Brazilian Football Confederation, Ednaldo Rodrigues confirmed earlier this year that Ancelotti would lead Brazil to the Copa America in June 2024.

Then, Rodrigues claimed that Fernando Diniz will be in charge of both the country’s female senior team and the men’s senior team until Ancelotti takes over in 2024.

“He will come and make the transition in Brazil for Ancelotti,” Rodrigues said as quoted by the BBC.

“His game plan is almost similar to that of the coach that will take over at Copa America, Ancelotti.

“We don’t call him an interim coach of the national team.”

However, earlier today, October 13 Italian transfer expert, Fabrizio Romano, tweeted that Ancelotti told Radio1 that there was no agreement between him and Brazil.

The Italian tactician was quoted as saying, “Agreement with Brazil? It’s all about rumors, links… I feel very good at Real Madrid as things stand.

“We started our season in an excellent way and we hope to keep going at the same level”.
