Internacional coach Dunga hits out at Botafogo ball boys

Internacional coach Dunga has hit out at Botafogo's ball boys after their 3-3 draw at the Estadio Olimpico on Thursday.

Brazilian defender Fabricio netted in the fourth minute of injury-time in Rio de Janeiro to snatch a draw for Dunga’s side.

But the former Seleção boss was not impressed with the ball boys as he felt they went missing in the closing stages as his side were pushing for an equaliser.

"The ball boys' job is to put the ball on the ground and not play for the home team," Dunga is quoted as saying by Reuters.

"I don't know who controls them but they are part of the spectacle. At the end of the match the ball boys disappeared. Who is responsible for that? I don't know.

"I spoke to the fourth official and he said he would take action - but he didn't."

Botafogo's ball boys and girls has caused controversy in the past, with one having made headlines last year for her part in a Maicosuel goal against Vasco da Gama.
