Mourinho is being considered for the position of Brazilian national team head coach.
The appointment of Carlo Ancelotti remains the Brazilian team’s top priority. Ednaldo Rodriguez, president of the Brazilian Football Confederation, supports his candidacy.
Rodriguez only dealt with Ancelotti through intermediaries. The Real Madrid coach stated unequivocally that he does not want to play any games during this crucial period of the season.
The Italian specialist’s priority is to stay with Real Madrid. But his future at the club will be in determination by the club’s ability to win a trophy this season. Real Madrid have not yet informed Ancelotti of their future plans.
In case Ancelotti’s appointment falls through, the CBF has compiled a backup list of candidates. It includes Roma manager José Mourinho, Fenerbahçe coach Jorge Jesus, Fluminense’s Fernando Diniz, and Palmeiras coach Abel Ferreira.
Mourinho admires CBF because of its numerous trophies, charisma, and command of the language.
Mourinho favored by Brazil as their national team’s manager
If their attempt to appoint Carlo Ancelotti as the next coach fails, Brazil has shortlisted Jose Mourinho as a replacement.
Tite resigned as manager of the Brazilian national team after the team’s quarter-final loss to Croatia in the 2022 World Cup.
The Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) is currently pursuing Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti. He is still in consideration as the favorite to take the job, but they have also prepared a shortlist that reportedly includes AS Roma manager Jose Mourinho.
The CBF’s preferred candidate is Ancelotti. But the Italian manager has requested that any meeting take place after the current season concludes. He does not want to hamper the club’s performances, which have led them to the Copa del Rey final. Similarly, Madrid has a 2-0 lead over Chelsea in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final match.
