Carlo Ancelotti: New Head Coach of Brazil National Team

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti will lead Brazil at the Copa America in the United States the following summer.

Fernando Diniz, the manager of Fluminense, was chosen as an interim coach for the upcoming season by Brazilian Football Confederation president Ednaldo Rodrigues.

‘His (Diniz) game strategy is nearly identical to that of Ancelotti, the coach who will take over at Copa America,’ Rodrigues stated.

‘We don’t refer to him as the national team’s temporary coach. He will travel to Brazil to assist Ancelotti with his transition.’

Madrid does not have stated anything, and there are no formal conditions for Ancelotti’s takeover.

Ancelotti’s contract with the Spanish side expires after one season. The Copa America begins on June 20 in the United States.

The Italian has never coached at the international level, yet he is one of the most accomplished coaches in contemporary football, having won four Champions Leagues and at least one league title in each of Europe’s top five divisions.

Meanwhile, Diniz will take charge of Brazil’s 2026 World Cup qualifiers beginning in September.

‘It’s a dream for anybody,’ Diniz remarked in a video uploaded on the Brazilian broadcaster Globo’s website.

‘It is an honor and a source of great pride for me to serve on the national team.

It was a call-up, especially in the way it took place, that became a consequence of CBF and Fluminense working together.

‘I’m certain we have what we need to move forward and make this work.’

Diniz will lead Brazil in crucial World Cup qualifiers, including a November home encounter against reigning champion Argentina.

Brazil’s first World Cup qualifier will be against Bolivia on September 7 at home.
