Real Madrid Coach Carlo Ancelotti Committed to Honoring Contract
Ancelotti flattered by interest from Brazil but focused on finishing his current deal with Real Madrid
Carlo Ancelotti, Real Madrid’s current coach, has spoken out about rumors of interest from Brazil for him to take on the role of their next coach. The 63-year-old Italian coach has said he is flattered by the rumors, but his focus is on finishing his current deal with Real Madrid. Ancelotti is under contract with the Spanish club through the end of next season, which he intends to honor.
Ancelotti has stated that he is committed to finishing his current deal with Real Madrid despite this, admitting that he enjoys being the club’s current coach. He has also expressed that anything could happen after his current contract is over, adding that it is all a matter of the future.
No Deal Has Been Reached Yet
The Brazilian soccer confederation denied rumors that they had reached a deal with Ancelotti in February, although this has not stopped speculation among the media. The goalkeeper of the Brazil team, Ederson, has suggested that there is a “big possibility” that Ancelotti could become their next manager.
Currently interim coach Ramon Menezes is leading Brazil as they search for a permanent successor to Tite, who stepped down after the World Cup. Menezes was in charge when Morocco recently defeated Brazil 2-1 in a friendly.
Ancelotti’s Record Setting Season with Real Madrid
Last season was a record-setting one for Ancelotti as he led Madrid to both the Champions League and Spanish league titles. Ancelotti became the first coach to win four Champions League titles and the first coach to win Europe’s top five domestic leagues.
This season has seen Madrid fall behind Barcelona in the Spanish league. However, they have reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League, so there is still a possibility of winning a 15th European Cup.
