Neymar says emotional farewell to Tite following World Cup exit

PSG star Neymar sends a heartfelt goodbye to manager Tite who decided to step down from Brazil’s head coach position.

Brazil were knocked out by Croatia as Dalic’s side countered every threat


made. Even a beautifully taken Neymar goal wasn’t enough to save Selecao, resulting in their early exit at the quarter-finals of the World Cup.

This prompted manager Tite to step down as manager of Brazil, which has had many pundits and players reacting to it including Neymar who posted on Instagram, saying his farewell to Tite.

"Before we met in person, we played a lot against and can I tell you? I thought you were really annoying! Because you put together a team to tag me, you would do everything to beat me and you still spoke ill of me. But destiny is funny, huh?”

Neymar said.

"I knew you as a coach and I already knew you were very good but as a person you are MUCH BETTER! You met me and you know who I am and that's what matters to me....

"I come here to openly thank you for everything, all the teachings you've given us... and there were so many. You will always be one of the best coaches I’ve ever had or will have, I will always hype you up."

Neymar felt that Tite didn’t get what he deserved with Brazil and that they could’ve gone and won the World Cup.

"We had beautiful moments but we also had moments that hurt us a lot and the latter will hurt us for a long time. You deserved to be crowned with this cup," he added. "We all deserved it for everything we did and for everything we gave up to try to achieve our biggest dream. But God didn't want it that way, patience. God has given us EVERYTHING!

"Thank you professor Tite, for all the learnings.. and if there is a phrase that I will never forget is "MENTALLY STRONG" and we will have to be VERY at this moment! A big hug and THANK YOU."



himself walks away from Brazil yet remains to be seen but his partnership with Tite, which yielded Brazil a single Copa America title in 2019, seems to be finally over.
