Dani Alves ~ Brazil Supporters Are Full Of Unwarranted Criticism

The Barcelona full-back accused certain sectors of the country of being overly judgmental when it came to the Selecao, who will take on the Inca on Tuesday in Salvador

Brazil star Dani Alves has hit out against critics of the national team, as Dunga’s men prepare for a vital World Cup qualifier against Peru.

Following the 1-1 draw on Friday against Argentina, the Selecao have picked up just four of nine available points in their campaign thus far.

But Alves has now accused certain Brazilian observers of being hypocrites when it comes to talking about the team.

“These days people speak as if it were easy to play football. Even people who used to play, they know how hard it is to make a pass or score a goal,” the Barcelona man told a press conference.

“And now they tell it like it’s easy. They screwed up in the same ways as people do now.”

The defender also spoke out about why some of Brazil’s stars seemingly manage to play better in Europe than for their national team, and he has put it down to the sporting outlook being “more relaxed”.

“I believe it is down to energy, that here in Brazil there is a very dense atmopshere,” he added.

“Here when they see training will only be open 15 minutes some get annoyed, others understand.

“Our country is very critical and impatient. It is different, I bet that when you guys go to cover the Champions League you are used to it.”

Alves and Brazil will host Peru in Salvador on Tuesday, having won their only previous home match so far in qualifying against Venezuela.
