Former Brazil national team boss Mano Menezes believes European football has left South America behind in terms of player development.

The Corinthians boss believes Brazilian have the normal characteristics like good dribbling and great technical skills but coaches don’t know how to develop them skills further.

Soccerly quoted Menezes after he spoke to TV Esporte Mais about what Brazil needs to do following their unforgettable World Cup experience where they lost their final two matches 7-1 and 3-0 to Germany and Holland respectively.

"The level of our players nowadays is technically worse,” the former Brazil boss said.

“Our ball control is worse, as is our passing, and people sometimes confuses juggling with the ability to play football, but they are different things.

"We see that the European football that has been developed (in recent years), does everything better than us.

“We still have the dribbling, the pure individual ability of the players a talent, but we don't know how to develop players like we used to do in the past. That's why we are lagging behind."
