Luis Enrique on Brazil’s managerial shortlist

Tite stepped down as Brazil head coach after they were eliminated by Croatia in the quarter-finals of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

The Brazilian Confederation are currently looking to appoint a new head coach for the role and according to Marca via Brazilian outlet O Globo, several candidates are being considered, with former Spain head coach Luis Enrique appearing on the shortlist.

The Asturian was named coach of the Spain national team on 9 July 2018 and was sacked from his post with La Roja after losing to Morocco on penalties in the last 16 of the World Cup.

In a recent interview with Ibai Llanos on Twitch, Luis Enrique said he would like to return to management in 2023.

Zinedine Zidane is also on the list of options as well as former PSG and Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel and even former River Plate manager Marcelo Gallardo, who recently left the Argentinian giants.
