Dani Alves Discusses Neymar Being Named Brazil Captain

Paris Saint-Germain superstar Dani Alves has discussed coach Tite's decision to make Neymar captain of Brazil after the recent criticism he received at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Transfer Update: Neymar

The 26-year-old was heavily criticised for diving and exaggerating contact throughout the tournament, during which he scored two goals in five appearances, but Alves feels that experience will lead to a change in Neymar, and is backing the star to learn in his new role.

"In life, sometimes things happen that make you mature and make you realise that you have to improve as a professional," the right-back said, as quoted by FourFourTwo.

"I've talked a lot with Neymar, I think he's gained experience, and the little shots he's received during the World Cup will make him even more mature, (lead to a) change of behaviour."

The former FC Barcelona star also shared the advice he gave the forward.

"You leave the kid aside and you become a man, and when you start becoming a man, your decisions and attitudes become more weighty," he added.

"I told him that if everyone tells you the same thing and not only one or two people, something is wrong.

"We all have flaws, but we must not stay in one's flaws. In life, we must try to evolve, because we are all intelligent."
