It’s easy for him to say, because he is a multi-millionaire who lives in plush Munich, but Dante says he supports the protestors in Brazil.
And what’s more, the Selecao and Bayern Munich centre-back says his national team-mates also believe that the people who took to the streets during the Confederations Cup this year were in the right.
There is a growing social movement in Brazil against the money lavished on the Confed and World Cups, when the gap between the rich and the poor in the South American nation continues to widen.
Only yesterday, football star turned politician, Romario, was trumpeting the need for more protests in the run-up to the World Cup next year.
And Dante says he and his team-mates agree with the protestors, that the estimated €10 billion spent on football related infrastructure in Brazil has far more important functions.
"I want to say a bit about the demonstrations," Dante told Die Welt.
"The national team players support the claims for better education, better hospitals and a higher standard of living."
Like Romario and all Brazilians, Dante is in love with football. And he obviously hopes the World Cup will be a success, and that Brazill will win it.
"I believe this can be an outstanding event," he said.
"Brazil is the home of football and everyone agrees that our World Cup will be the biggest event in the world."
But it is interesting to see that even the players who will participate in the World Cup next year have reservations about the money Brazil has spent to host it.
