After being eliminated from World Cup Qatar 2022 at the hands of Croatia, in the quarterfinals, Brazil announced the departure of Tite from the technical direction and is currently looking for a new coach. The surprising thing is that the new leader of the ‘Canarinha’ would not be Brazilian, something that has not happened for 67 years.
The international press, for several days, has been reporting several names that could occupy the DT position with a view to what will be the 2026 Qualifiers. All of them are foreigners.
Who are the options to be the new DT of Brazil?
- Luis Enrique (ESP)
- Zinedine Zidane (FRA)
- Thomas Tuchel (FALE)
- Marcelo Gallardo (ARG)
Luis Enrique He comes from having a bad experience with Spain in Qatar 2022; Zinedine Zidane He has not directed a season ago after his successful stint at Real Madrid; Thomas Tuchel left Chelsea mid-season and Marcelo Gallardo He ended his great cycle at River Plate.
If some of these alternatives materialize, Brazil would have its third foreign coach in its entire history. Previously there were the Portuguese Jorge Gomes de Lima and the Argentine Filpo Núñez.
The Rio de Janeiro media also report other national names such as Dorival Junior from Flamengo, Fernando Diniz from Fluminense and Mano Menezes, who was already in the Brazilian team between 2010 and 2012.
