Carlo Ancelotti to Brazil : Failed to win the La Liga and defeated three times against FC Barcelona this season, the reigning UEFA Champions League winning coach was really in the hot seat at Real Madrid.
Courted by Brazil, the latest positive results of Don Carlo could keep him in the Spanish capital.
Last weekend, FC Barcelona clinched the Spanish league title for the first time since 2019. Less dominant than last season, Real Madrid missed many chances in the competition against Barça and were quickly left behind in the title race.
This situation is coupled with the Brazilian failure in Qatar they were eliminated in the quarter-finals against Croatia on penalties.
The Auriverde parted ways with their coach, Tite, and are still looking for a big name to manage the most successful national football team in the world in terms of the FIFA World Cup.
This great name could be that of the Mister with an XXL CV.
But Real Madrid’s latest positive results may change things. Still in contention in the semi-finals of the Champions League and winners of the Copa del Rey after eliminating the Catalan rival by 4-0 on aggregate in the semis.
These results could keep Carlo Ancelotti in the Spanish capital at least into the 2023/24 season.
The Madrid management, which visibly intended to separate from the Italian coach at the end of the season, would have taken into account these latest results but also the situation of the group.
While moving towards a second Champions League final in a row, the transition between the senior players and young ones is well underway. Ancelotti is unanimous in the dressing room and no credible replacement seems to stand out.
For his part, the former AC Milan player expressed in March his desire to stay on the Real bench, and to end his career there at the expense of the Seleçao offering him a four-year contract.
“If it was just me, I would stay here forever.” Only a big disappointment this evening against Manchester City would push the merengue leaders to change their minds again.
