Brazilian Football Confederation president Rodrigues backtracks on Ancelotti hiring

Brazilian Football Confederation president Ednaldo Rodrigues played coy yesterday about Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti.

Ancelotti, off contract in June, is tipped to take charge of Brazil in 2024 - a prospect Rodrigues has happily talked up.

But now Rodrigues is less bullish, having greeted the question only with a smile.

He then said: "It's a job in progress. Anything that changes takes time to adapt.

"(Fernando) Diniz is renewing the national team in a very profound way, with young players who need more time to develop their potential."
