Brazil coach, Tite has come out to claim that Tunisia were being overtly aggressive with Neymar to rule him out of the upcoming World Cup. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, it was clear that the Tunisian players were doing everything within their power to rule Neymar out of the World Cup with their tackles during the friendly.
Tite added that he, however, understands the competitive spirit of friendlies, and his players were prepared for it.
His words, “The game on the pitch – we knew he would be competitive, loyal, but I didn’t imagine the move that happened to Neymar. It’s a move to get players out of the World Cup,”
“The competitive spirit doesn’t allow you to play a friendly that doesn’t have an emotional clash, so we wanted to prepare and we went to risk it, yes. But that’s what we decided to do.”
