Thiago Silva of Chelsea has joined the list of athletes who support Carlo Ancelotti for the vacant Brazil manager position.
After parting company with Tite after the conclusion of their dismal 2022 FIFA World Cup campaign, which saw them lose to Croatia in the quarterfinals, the Selecao are looking for a new manager.

The biggest connection, though, has been made with Ancelotti, who is expected to leave Real Madrid at the end of the current campaign.
