1 year ago

Brazil reportedly want France legend Zinedine Zidane to replace Tite as coach after failing to lure Pep Guardiola away from Manchester City.

Tite resigned as Brazil coach after the pre-tournament World Cup favorites were knocked out in the quarter-finals. Croatia beat Brazil 4-2 on penalties and kicked them out of the World Cup.

And according to Ok Diario, the Samba Boys will try to tempt three-time Champions League winner with Real Madrid, Zidane, to take charge of the Seleçao.

The Brazilian broke down in negotiations with Manchester City boss Guardiola, who recently signed a new contract that will keep him at the Etihad until the summer of 2025.

Zidane is being supported by his former Real Madrid teammate and Brazil icon, Ronaldo. R9 has a good relationship with the president of the Brazilian Football Confederation.

Zidane had hoped to take charge of France and has already reportedly turned down six offers, including a six-figure bid from Paris Saint-Germain to return to management.
