Neymar Snubbed For Brazil Captaincy

With the 2019 Copa America just weeks away, Brazil have announced who will captain the Selecao at the tournament, and it is not superstar Neymar.

PSG Boss Makes Neymar & Mbappe Admission

The Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) announced on Monday that veteran right-back Dani Alves will lead the team next month when they host the Copa.

Alves will wear the armband in the team's friendly matches before the competition begins, the first of which is against Qatar on 5 June.

According to Fox Sports, manager Tite informed Neymar of his decision this past weekend, when the Paris Saint-Germain forward arrived at the team's training ground.

Although the boss has rotated the side's captaincy quite often since he took charge, the 27-year-old was thought to be the side's permanent skipper after the Selecao's exit at the 2018 World Cup.

Reports: Neymar's Agents Reach Out To Barca

Many former players, and Tite too, have condemned Neymar's actions of late, especially after he was involved in a bust-up with a supporter recently, which could have had some bearing on Tite's decision to give the captaincy to Alves.

Do you think the manager has made the correct call? Let us know in the comments section below.
