Thiago Silva response after been criticizing Brazilians
Brazil and Chelsea top-class defender Thiago Silva speaks out after he was abused on social media
However, Silva and Neymar were vocal about Brazilian fan’s criticism towards failing to win Copa America 2021.
Former goalkeeper, Wagner Fernando Velloso, called Silva an online bully for his comments.
Moreover, questioned his attitude and whether he is the best figure to be the captain of the Brazilian team.
UOL Esporterelayed the comments made by the pundits.
“[Thiago Silva] is very tough on social media. When he had to position himself on Copa America, he stayed quiet.
He comes to play for penalties, sits on the floor with his back to the goal, and cries.
What captain is this that the Brazilian team is? Who is this captain? I think there are much better people for this role.
Then, he says that there are people who will ask for a photo, a ticket. I never needed it,” Velloso said.
“It’s an obnoxious team, which has no connection with the country.
Most of the players left early to play in Europe.
Tite doesn’t seem to like to call up those who play in Brazil.
He waits for the player to leave to play for the national team.
It’s a team that [Silva] has no identity with the fan.
He doesn’t play here; he’s distant. There are several reasons.”
