Brazil prioritize Carlo Ancelotti and Jose Mourinho as managerial candidates

Andy Mattioli

Roma boss Jose Mourinho is once again being linked with the Brazil national team.

Following Tite’s exit in the aftermath of Brazil’s elimination from the most recent World Cup, the federation are still trying to lure two big names for the vacancy.

According to The Athletic, Brazil are still in contact with intermediaries for Carlo Ancelotti and Jose Mourinho.

The Special One’s future at Roma is yet to be determined, but the Portuguese technician has – much like Ancelotti with Real Madrid – one more year left on his current contract, making him a difficult target to pursue.

Other candidates for the job include Jorge Jesus, Fernando Diniz and Abel Ferreira.
