Ednaldo Rodrigues to Reuters: “Carlo is not only the favorite candidate of the players, but also of the fans. Wherever he goes in Brazil, in any stadium, he is the first name the fans ask me about”
“Ancelotti would be an obvious choice.” The CBF comes out and declares its admiration for the Real Madrid coach, known for some time unofficially. The declaration of esteem and the relative endorsement comes from the mouth of the president of the Brazilian football federation Ednaldo Rodrigues, interviewed exclusively by Reuters after the friendly lost by Brazil with Morocco. On the bench in Tangier last night was Ramon Menezes, fresh South American champion with the Brazilian Under 20 team.
Respected by all
“Ancelotti would be an obvious choice, he enjoys unanimity not only among the players but also among the fans” Rodrigues said, acknowledging that the Emilian coach is the CBF’s first choice to replace Tite, who resigned after the World Cup in Qatar. “Ancelotti is respected by all players, past and present. Not just from Ronaldo Nazario or Vinicius Junior, but from everyone who played for him. He has all my admiration for the honesty and quality that he applies to his work on a constant basis, he needs no introduction whatsoever. He is truly a top coach who has won a lot and I hope he can continue to win a lot ”.
Affection of the fans
“Ancelotti is not only the favorite candidate of the players, but also of the fans. Wherever he goes in Brazil, in any stadium, he is the first name the fans ask me about. They speak very fondly of him, acknowledge the exemplary work he has done throughout his career. We have to have faith in God, let’s wait for the right moment and we’ll see if we can do it, since we’re looking for a new coach for the national team.”
According to Reuters, however, Rodrigues has not yet officially contacted the Italian coach, given that he has a contract with Real Madrid until 2024 and therefore utmost caution is required. However, the idea is to announce the new coach in mid-May, therefore before the end of the European season. It remains to be seen what Florentino Perez thinks.
