Brazil continue their search for a new coach and names are still being floated ahead of the next World Cup in 2026. In an attempt to speed up the decision, Ednaldo Rodrigues, president of the CBF (Brazilian Football Confederation), will travel to Europe with the aim of finding the coach to succeed Tite on the national team’s bench, report AS. The idea of the Brazilian president is to be able to talk to some of the coaches on the shortlist. Among others, Carlo Ancelotti, Pep Guardiola and Luis Enrique are the favourites, as reported by the Brazilian outlet UOL.
One of the objectives of the CBF president is to be able to meet with Luis Enrique after the Asturian coach left the Spain national team. Brazil could now give him the possibility of a return to management, with Ronaldo acting as an intermediary by helping Rodrigues in the selection process. The president of Real Valladolid is said to be keen for both Luis Enrique and Brazil to join paths. UOL also reports that the former coach of La Roja could be interested in taking the role.
