Real Madrid head coach Carlo Ancelotti will leave the Bernabeu next season and take over as the next permanent manager of the Brazilian national team.
The 64-year-old is currently preparing Los Blancos for his final pre-season before leaving the club on the second occasion and will be joined by new signing Jude Bellingham who signed on a six-year deal last month.
Carlo Ancelotti set to take over at Brazil
The news was officially confirmed by the president of the Brazilian Football Confederation Ednaldo Rodrigues who stated Ancelotti will take over following the conclusion of the 2024 Copa America.
Until then, Fernando Diniz will take over the Selecao as interim head coach and keep his current position as manager of Brazilian club Fluminense in the meantime.
The Selecao will become Ancelotti’s first ever job as a head coach of a national team by which time the Italian will have turned 65. Ancelotti is currently coaching three Brazilian players at the Bernabeu already: defender Eder Militao and star forwards Rodrygo and Vinicius Junior.
