Carlo Ancelotti appointed head coach of Brazil national team

Carlo Ancelotti, former Roma player and current head coach of Real Madrid, is set to become the new manager of Brazil’s national team.

The Brazilian federation has announced that Ancelotti will take up his coaching duties after the 2023/24 season, once his contract with Real Madrid expires, marking the end of his second tenure with the Spanish giants.

His official takeover will begin in June, allowing him to start preparing the squad for the 2024 Copa America. In the meantime, Fluminense manager Diniz will take charge of the squad.

It’s worth noting that Roma manager Jose Mourinho was also considered for the role after Tite’s departure. However, the Special One declined the offer.
