Brazil Coach Tite: "I Refuse to Comment on Neymar Rape Allegations"

Brazil head coach Tite has refused to pass judgement on rape allegations that “indispensable” Neymar strenuously denied ahead of Copa America.

“First of all, I know the importance of the subject, the real extent of it,” Tite told a press conference on Monday. “The subject is a personal one and there will be time for people to judge the facts. For now, I won't allow myself to judge. “What I can say is that, in three years together, in our discussions about personal subjects, he was always loyal and truthful."

“I cannot comment or cross any lines – I have a lot of energy to spend on what is essential and important, on preparing the team."

“If I keep searching and making assumptions it will consume energy and take me away from what I should be focusing on. I want to focus on my work. I had two talks with Neymar, but both of them were about personal subjects. We know what we said, the truths we exchanged. They are the facts, the captaincy and the importance of him being focused on work.”

Tite was also asked to comment on Neymar's importance to the Brazil national team, to which he replied: “Technically, he is indispensable for Brazil.
