Brazil coach Tite worried about Neymar: ‘I hope he is okay’


Brazil head coach Tite has revealed he has worries about Neymar’s fitness ahead of the Copa America this summer. The Paris Saint-Germain forward damaged the same metatarsal he broke in February 2018, which almost withheld the forward from participating at the 2018 World Cup.

“Yes [I’m worried about Neymar],” Tite told reporters at the Copa America draw, where hosts Brazil were placed in a group with Bolivia, Venezuela and Peru. “I followed the press, I know the comments, I have the same information, he needs three days to see the real diagnosis, meanwhile I hope he is okay.”

“We have a scheduled trip to have contact with the players in Europe, we will see three or four important games, Liverpool, PSG and Barcelona. To have direct contact with the players, it’s part of my activity. I’m going to talk to some managers…and I’ll get in touch with Neymar and I hope everything is fine.”
