Brazil legend Romario strongly opposes Brazil’s plan to appoint Carlo Ancelotti in 2024 as he insists Fernando Diniz should remain in charge.
After the 2022 World Cup, Fernando Diniz became Brazil’s coach on a one-year interim contract.
However, Brazil is strongly interested in hiring Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti. Reports suggest that he will replace Diniz at the end of the season when his contract with Real Madrid expires.
Brazil great Romario, who won the World Cup in 1994, opposes Brazil’s plans to appoint Ancelotti and insists Diniz should remain in charge.
“Actually, here’s the thing, first I want to congratulate Ednaldo [Rodrigues], who is president of the CBF, he chose Diniz well. He’s the best coach we’ve got,” Romario told Brazilian outlet O Globo. “He [Diniz] doesn’t have time to do with the national team what he does at club level. which is his forte, training, getting these players together, he does what he can. He’s drawn and lost the last two games, nobody always wins. But I can say that, in my opinion, in my humble opinion, the Brazilian national team is in great hands with Diniz. F*ck Ancelotti. I want him [Diniz] until the end.”
Brazil is in third place in the CONMEBOL World Cup qualification after a 2-0 defeat against Uruguay.
