In May, A-League hopefuls South Melbourne announced that Carlos would be their head coach should they be admitted to Australia's elite level, however this matter may affect any deal.

The four-time La Liga winner has spent time coaching Turkish clubs Sivasspor and Akhisar Belediyespor, along with Anzhi Makhachkala in Russia and the Delhi Dynamos in India.

He is currently expecting his ninth child with current wife Mariana Lucon.
