Ancelotti Officially Appointed as the New Brazil Coach

Carlo Ancelotti will take over Brazil starting from next summer. His spell will begin with the 2024 Copa America after the end of next season, where he’ll continue to be on Real Madrid’s bench. The head of the Federation Ednaldo Rodrigues made the announcement to CNN (via Rai News).

Fernando Diniz, who’s also helming Fluminense, will be the caretaker manager for the time being. He’ll be in charge for six qualifiers. The CBF is turning to a foreign boss for the fourth time in history. They hadn’t had one since 1965, when Argentine Filpo Nunez guided the squad for one game.

Ancelotti will succeed Tite in the Brazil dugout, who resigned after La Seleçao was eliminated in the World Cup semifinals at the hands of Croatia. He’ll attempt to take home the most coveted competition in 2026. Several players and personalities endorsed him. The search also involved José Mourinho at some point, but the Italian tactician was always the frontrunner.

The 64-year-old will manage a national team for the first time in his career. His cabinet trophy includes two Champions League, with Milan and Real Madrid, and domestic titles in five different countries, considering his successes with Bayern Munich, Chelsea, and PSG.
