Carlo Ancelotti has no intention of leaving Real Madrid amid Brazil links


Real Madrid head coach Carlo Ancelotti has been linked with the Brazil job, but the Italian wants to remain in the Spanish capital.

Carlo Ancelotti has declared that he has no intention of leaving Real Madrid at the end of the season.

Ancelotti enjoyed a superb second spell as head coach of Los Blancos after returning to the club in July 2021, winning the UEFA Champions League and LaLiga last season.

The wily Italian has also delivered Club World Cup and UEFA Super Cup glory, with Madrid in the hunt to lift the Champions League trophy once more this season and the Copa del Rey.

Barcelona are 13 points clear of Madrid at the top of La Liga, so it seems only a matter of time before the reigning champions are dethroned.

Ancelotti has just over a year left on his contract and the 63-year-old has been linked with the Brazil job but has no plans to end his spell in the Spanish capital.

He told reporters on Friday: “I’m proud of everything, [his second spell at Madrid] has been successful so far. I hope to continue but I’m proud of what I’ve achieved.

“I think [Madrid president Florentino] Perez supports me. The president is always very kind to me, we will be here next season without a doubt, I will respect the contract.”

Ancelotti has faced criticism from certain quarters this season and has taken it on the chin.

He added: “That’s football, we’ve had success in some competitions, but you have to wait to judge. I listen to criticism, that’s normal. We have to live in a world where you have to listen to the people, the club, the players.

“Some criticisms are understandable, some are not, and what you understand helps to improve.”
