On the sidelines of the announcement of the Brazilian players summoned for the matches against Colombia and Argentina as part of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers, Tite was asked about Neymar’s statements about his life off the pitch. But the Brazil coach did not get wet.
Not happy Neymar. The number 10 of Paris Saint-Germain can no longer stand being criticized for his supposedly bad lifestyle off the lawns. In an interview for the Brazilian YouTube channel “Fui Clear ???” achieved before the Champions League victory against Manchester City, “Ney” had slammed his fist on the table, denying himself to be a true pro: “It is a lack of respect when people say:” Ah, Neymar does not take care of him, Neymar is this, Neymar is that “. How can you hold 12 years at the top without taking care of yourself? Nobody takes that into account”, breathed the Brazilian. I know how to take care of myself. I have a physiotherapist and a physical trainer with me almost 24 hours a day, what for? Nothing at all?”
“My ethical limit stops at work”
This rant inevitably fell on Tite’s ears. Except that the Brazilian coach did not wish to give his opinion on the sidelines of the announcement of his list for the qualifying matches for the 2022 World Cup against Colombia (November 11) and Argentina (16). After recalling that it was about “the individual behavior of all the athletes, not just Neymar”, he indicated that he was not there to say “what is good or what is bad.”
While the Neymar case questions in Europe and in particular in France, the coach refuses to get wet: “Unfortunately I will not be able to answer, he kicked in touch. My limit in terms of ethics stops at work, discipline, performance. I am not the coach of PSG. I am a coach. I do not need to have an opinion on everything, “concludes Tite.
