Brazil manager Tite urges Vinicius to continue dancing

The head of Spanish agents Bravo caused a lot of controversies after he claimed Vinicius' goal celebration is like "playing the monkey". The Brazil boss Tite becomes the latest to support the winger against Bravo’s claim.

The head of the Spanish football agents,

Pedro Bravo

, recently made a statement on the TV show El Chiringito, claiming

Vinicius Junior

's goal celebration is a lack of respect for the opponents. He said:

“You have to respect your opponents. When you score a goal, if you want to dance Samba, you should go to the sambodromo in Brazil. You have to respect your mates and stop playing the monkey.”



coach Tite told a press conference on Thursday: "

I have taken some time to speak about this publicly and I'm not usually one to do this sort of thing.

"Brazil is always respectful of their rivals. Now, Brazil belongs to Vini - not only Vini, but to all the players.

"To all those players, Vini and the rest, we have told them to continue to bring your talent and your art to those of us who love football. Dance, shine, and continue to be you in your essence. Always. That is the essence - the joy, the vibrations, the celebration."



continued: "In the match against Chile at the Maracana, they did a little dance together. There was no contempt for the opponent. I know how to distinguish a provocation from a beautiful act of joy. May they continue to be as happy as they are.



chief executive Miguel Angel Gil Marin found Atletico fans responsible for abusing Vinicius. He said

: “I know our fans well and it is unacceptable that someone might think they are racist.

"Those shouts from a minority embarrass us Atleticos and they cannot stain the image of the club, nor the behaviour and sentiment of the immense majority.”
