The president of the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF), ednaldo rodriguesthe Italian said it was Sunday Carlo Ancelottitechnician of real Madridcontinues to be his favorite to direct the Brazilian team and will wait for the end of the Spanish championship to receive an answer.
“Our plan A continues to be exactly that (hiring Ancelotti). We have a feeling that it will work. We will wait for the end of the competition (the Spanish League). Barcelona already has a champion, but we will wait for the competition to end because we have an intuition that it can work”, Rodrigues said in an interview on ‘Band’ television.
The entity’s president played down the fact that Ancelotti has so far not decided whether he wants to take over as Brazil coach, a vacant position since Tite resigned following Canarinha’s premature exit from the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. “If I were in his place, with an enforceable contract, I wouldn’t leave the company that hired me to do that (to say it wanted to assume a different role)”, he said.
Rodrigues affirmed that Ancelotti is preferred because he has great charm for the Brazilian team and because he knows the players who have passed and those who are currently playing for Canarinha very well.
He also said that the CBF’s long wait to announce the new coach is because the entity wants a coach not just for a cycle but for a project that includes the preparation of new generations. “We want someone who has a project not only for the absolute team but also for the base teams, such as Sub23, Sub20 and Sub17, who can serve as a feeder,” he said.
That project includes that the youngest players “can be observed and taken advantage of” by the first team. “He (Ancelotti) is a coach who has such a vision and has the courage to put new talents to play. Therefore, without diminishing any coach, whom we respect – and Brazil has many coaches who we appreciate because they are capable. still waiting,” he said.
Rodrigues said he hoped to announce Brazil’s new coach after the friendly window set by FIFA for June, with the Canarinhas playing Guinea on June 17 in Barcelona and Senegal three days later in Lisbon. “We hope to have a clearer position in June and we can speak with more conviction,” he said.
Dorival, Diniz or Abel Ferreira, in the room
Despite the fact that no deadline has been set for the announcement, he recalled that starting in September of this year Brazil will have its first commitment for the qualifiers for the 2026 World Cup. According to Rodrigues, in case it needs to use plan B or plan C, the Confederation is looking at other coaches such as the Brazilian Dorival Júnior and Fernando Diniz, from Fluminense, or the Portuguese Abel Ferreira (Palmeiras).
“They are very important names. We have been following the work of Dorival, Abel and Diniz. We have seen all the important work they have done and we have also observed others who are important and I am not mentioning but I can say they are capable,” he assured.
He added that he is not interested in Abel Ferreira’s constant fighting with the press and referees, but rather in the ability he has shown in his work as coach of Palmeiras, where he has already won several titles, including the Brazilian Championship and the Cup last year. . Libertadores of 2021. “Regardless of the situation, the only certainty is that the CBF will choose the one it considers the best for the next cycle. And the cycle is not only playing in the next World Cup but also winning the World Cup, ” he concluded.
