Former Brazil manager Mano Menezes praises fashion sense of Dani Alves and rejects chance to criticise Barcelona man
Daniel Alves criticised previous Brazil manager Mano Menezes recently and Menezes has responded in lighthearted fashion but admitting he likes the fashion sense of the Barcelona man.
Alves admitted Scolari had greatly helped the national team since taking charge and gave Seleção exactly what they required.
This was seen by some as criticism, either inadvertently or deliberately, aimed towards Menezes but the Corinthians manager has turned down the chance to hit back.
He told Globo: “I am no longer involved with the Brazilian team and everyone is entitled to an opinion.
“You can agree or disagree. The important thing is to respect the opinion.”
Before Menezes ended the subject by saying: “Daniel Alves was always fashionable at the time I was there. That’s what interests me. In an interview, he escaped that question. Not everyone has such a great ability to put ideas together and I liked his hat.”
The former Brazil manager was talking about the Barcelona defender’s outrageous outfit pictured above whilst on international duty in South Africa.
Menezes turned to serious matters when talking about his current team, Corinthians and how they have bounced back since the high profile training ground invasion from supporters.
He added: “The most important thing I could give to the group is tranquility, for them to understand and go working.
“When we have the general supporter treating us with respect, this gives us peace of mind and credibility to work seriously, which is the only way I know.”
