Following the departure of Tite after a disappointing World Cup in Qatar, the Brazilian Football Federation is yet to appoint a new coach. The leading candidate for the position is Carlo Ancelotti, but the Real Madrid coach has not given a definitive answer.

Thiago Silva Speaks Out

Chelsea's star defender and captain, Thiago Silva, spoke out about Carlo Ancelotti's links with the Brazilian National Team earlier this week, reigniting speculation about the manager's exit. In an interview with TJ Sports USA, Silva said, "To be honest, I would love for it to be him.

We have a strong friendship and understanding. He was my first coach in Europe at Milan. His career shows that he is ready." Silva went on to say, "I don't know if I will be part of the Brazil team, but I hope he accepts the offer and brings his brand of football to the team."

Players Openly Express Their Desires

Although it is considered taboo in the world of football to publicly discuss the future of contracted individuals, Brazilian players have not shied away from openly talking about Ancelotti as their next manager.

Vinicius Jr echoed the sentiments of other Brazilian stars such as Ederson, saying in an interview, "I believe Ancelotti wants to become Brazil's manager."

Ancelotti's Response to Come in June

According to Marca, Ancelotti will only be able to give an answer in June after the current season ends.

The Italian manager is known for his integrity and does not wish to enter into negotiations with the Brazilian federation without first speaking with the leaders of Real Madrid, with whom he has a contract until the summer of 2024.

The president of the Football Association of Brazil, Ednaldo Rodrigues, denied reports of contacts with Ancelotti but indicated that he is in no hurry to appoint Tite's successor and has enough time to make a decision. This means that the Federation may have to wait for Ancelotti's answer in June.

If an agreement with the Italian manager is not reached, the options for the new coach of Brazil are Luis Enrique and Zinedine Zidane.
