Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti has debunked rumors that he is leaving Real Madrid to coach the Brazil national team.
The Brazilian federation is still looking for a replacement for Adenor Leonardo Bacchi, better known as Tite, who resigned after a quarter-final loss to Croatia in the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Tite’s dismissal ended his six-year coaching of the national team.
Rumors have circulated that Brazil has been in contact with Carlo Ancelotti in recent weeks, but that has officially turned out to be false, according to the Italian blunder.
The Italian manager told reporters about the Brazil Job: “I don’t know, I was never approached by them and the Brazilian federation never called me. I just want to stay at Real Madrid.”
He continued: “I will never ask Real Madrid to let me leave this club.”
The 63-year-old also confirmed he will not be signing any new players this transfer window as he is happy with his squad and looking to shed dead weights.
“We don’t need any purchases in January, our market is closed – and we’ll see with some players before leaving.”
“We have recruited Endrick, top talent. I saw him last year and we talked a bit, he’s coming in 2024. We’re happy and excited at the club.”
His performances in the 2021/22 season have been stellar, coaching Madrid to a 14th UEFA Champions League win and taking the club’s 35th La Liga title to the Bernabeu.
