Despite Carlo Ancelotti making it clear that he will be remaining at Real Madrid beyond the ongoing season, the Brazil national team remain adamant about making him their next manager.

Brazil Football Confederations (CBF) president Ednaldo Rodrigues has already declared in public that Ancelotti is their top preference to take over as manager after Tite was discharged from his duties following the Selecao’s World Cup debacle.

There had been speculations that the Italian’s job might be under threat if he were to fail to deliver major titles this season. As it would happen, Los Blancos lost the La Liga title to Barcelona while they were eliminated by Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals.

Despite that, though, Ancelotti has made it abundantly clear that he will remain in charge at Real Madrid next season, while also confirming that he has been told as much by the club president Florentino Perez.

But, as per Mario Cortegana of The Athletic, Brazil are still not ready to give up on their efforts to try and appoint the 63-year-old mastermind as their new manager.

As such, the South American giants are planning one last push to try and convince Ancelotti to leave Real Madrid and sign up with them.

The Selecao have now gone more than five months without announcing a new manager with U-20 boss Ramon Menezes taking charge of the senior team as well on an interim basis.

He was in charge of Brazil’s first team when they played a friendly in March and is expected to continue when they will be in action again next month.

With the World Cup 2026 qualifiers set to start in September, they would ideally want to finalise an appointment well before that. But even though CBF continue to yearn for Ancelotti, an agreement is impossible as things stand.

In what is starting to become an alarmingly common occurrence, a set of Barcelona fans were spotted hurling abusive chants towards Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr.

Barça will be facing PSG in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal today in less than an hour and in the lead-up to the game, a section of the Catalans’ supporters were seen chanting “Vinicius, die” on the streets.

It is not the first time this has happened, with Vinicius being constantly targeted by not only Barcelona fans but supporters of a number of other La Liga clubs.

In fact, last month, Barcelona fans were seen hurling the same chants before their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Napoli.

The same had happened outside Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys in Montjuic prior to the Clasico in October last year.

Moreover, this past weekend, a Mallorca fan at Son Moix directed racist abuse towards Vinicius’ Real Madrid teammate, Aurelien Tchouameni.

It is shocking and embarrassing that these incidents continue to occur. It remains to be seen if any action is taken by the concerned authorities against those involved.
