The Brazilian Football Federation has refuted claims that Carlo Ancelotti, the manager of Real Madrid, had signed a new contract to lead the national team.
Since Tite’s resignation following Brazil’s exit from the 2022 FIFA World Cup quarterfinals last year, the nation has been actively looking for a new manager.
Ancelotti has reportedly accepted to become the head coach of Le Selecao, according to earlier reports.
One of the well-known names to replace Fernando Santos as Brazil’s national coach was the former manager of Chelsea and Everton.
In a statement released on Friday, the Brazilian football federation has finally refuted those reports.
The Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) issued a statement saying, in part, “The news that Italian Carlo Ancelotti, the coach of Real Madrid, will take over as the new coach of Brazil’s national team is unfounded.”
