Iconic Football Coach Carlo Ancelotti Set to Join Brazil in 2024

Coach Carlo Ancelotti is leaving his position at the La Liga team,  Real Madrid in 2024 to take on a new challenge with the Brazil national team, as per the announcement by the Brazilian soccer federation. Brazil is the upcoming Carlo Ancelotti new team destiny, despite all the monkey wrenches thrown in the machinery.

The decision has been in the works for a while, but now it’s official. Ancelotti will take over the reins from interim coach Fernando Diniz once he arrives. Diniz will serve as head coach until Ancelotti’s arrival in the summer of 2024. The spot has been vacant since the previous coach, Tite, stepped down following the World Cup last year. Brazil set their sights on Ancelotti and their persistence has paid off.

Ancelotti has been coaching soccer players like Vinicius Junior, Eder Militao, and Rodrygo at Real Madrid. So, he’s no stranger to the Brazilian squad. The hope is that his experience and knowledge will keep Brazil on the winning track once he joins.

Copa America and World Cup 2026 in the Crosshairs

He will be on board just in time for the Copa America set to be held in the United States. Beyond that, he’s also expected to lead the team at the 2026 World Cup in the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

Ednaldo Rodrigues, the head of the Brazilian soccer federation, shared the soccer news of Ancelotti’s appointment at a press conference on Wednesday. However, nothing has been heard from the coach regarding the Carlo Ancelotti new team pick, yet.

Real Madrid’s Dilemma

This announcement comes at a tricky time for both Ancelotti and Real Madrid. Any slips on the field might lead people to question if Ancelotti’s attention has been divided by his future plans with Brazil.

Poor performance could potentially prompt an early goodbye from Madrid. Last La Liga season was seen as a rebuilding phase for Real Madrid, but the pressure to perform and win remains high. Time will tell if he is able to leave on his terms for the Carlo Ancelotti new team destination.
