After a 2021 Tokyo Olympics campaign, which ended with a silver medal for the Brazil Women’s National Team, Zé Roberto is re-thinking his decision to retire, being much closer to the decision to continue in charge of the ‘Seleção’ until the 2024 Paris Olympics. The result in Japan gave a 67-year-old expert the incentive to resume his mission on the bench of a team, to which he commanded to winning two Olympic gold medals, for another three years.

“There are great possibilities (to remain a head coach), but there’s a lot to happen before that. Although when the list for the South American Championship, which will start soon, came out, there was already criticism. People said that I had called the same squad from the Olympics. But it’s worth remembering that the South American Championship is a qualification for the World Championship, and we didn’t have any way to train another group of players. Yes, we have to go there with full force,” Zé Roberto said in an interview for a podcast Na rede com Nalbert.
