Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson says Carlo Ancelotti managing Brazil National Team is a “big possibility”
The goalkeeper spoke after joining up with the Brazil National Team and spoke about the potential arrival of the current Madrid boss.
Is a secret still a secret if a goalkeeper tells everyone? Manchester City shot-stopper, Ederson, let a huge, Italian cat of of the bag when he announced at a press conference that, after “discussing with Militão, Vinicius, and Casemiro, there is a big possibility that [Carlo Ancelotti] comes [to manage Brazil].”
The Italian’s first stint at Real Madrid was between 2013 and 2015, where he won La Décima, Madrid’s much-coveted 10th European title. Since the start of his second spell, which started in June 2021, he has won a LaLiga title and Madrid’s 14th Champions League. But despite the glory, such is the role at Madrid that the future of the manager has been put under the spotlight once again due to a slight dip in form over the past few weeks.
‘We will know shortly’ says Ederson
Carlo Ancelotti is, according to Ederson, “an exceptional coach, everyone in his group likes him, with a victorious career.” The manager has been linked with the Brazil job on previous occasions, all of which have come to nothing. This time, however, it appears as though the rumours are a lot firmer than they had previously been presented.
“Just look at his CV. We will know shortly whether he will be here or not,” Ederson said. “I hope we can have a new coach quickly. I feel the anticipation too because there’s too much speculation. Is it a Brazilian or a foreign coach? We are also living that phase of anxiety.”
City’s Madrid tie now has a new meaning
He continued, saying that Manchester City’s aim was to knock Real Madrid out of the Champions League, but not before adding a new twist to the tale: ”We will try to eliminate Real Madrid so that Ancelotti can come to Brazil as quick as possible!”
Under-20 team coach Ramon Menezes will be in charge at Saturday’s friendly against Morocco; the post of national team boss has been vacant since Tite’s departure after World Cup elimination to Croatia ended a spell that lasted over 6 years.
