Brazil’s extreme right president Jair Bolsonaro stepped in and consented to have each of the 28 games, yet arranging was rushed and, Tite said, hazardous for the groups and players included.
“The association left a ton to be wanted,” Tite said. “The pitches were poor. The players were put in unreasonable danger. This shouldn’t occur in a major competition like this one. ”
“I’m speaking explicitly about the man capable, Alejandro (Dominguez), who is the leader of Conmebol,” Tite added. “I’m discussing him, to getting sort out the competition in a short space of time.”
Tite made comparable reactions about the contributions before the competition and was fined $5,000.
Likewise, the Brazilian players condemned CONMEBOL just before the initial match, saying the association was “lacking”.
Tite’s reactions came minutes after Argentina won 1-0 to end a 28-year prize dry season and win the Copa America for a record-equalling fifteenth time.
The loss was Brazil’s first since an amicable misfortune in 2019 and their first aggressive loss since going down to Belgium in the 2018 World Cup.
However, the accomplished mentor adulated crafted by his contrary number Lionel Scaloni was searing at how Argentina eased back the game down after they started to lead the pack halfway through the main half.
“The game was so stop-start,” he said. “We needed to play, but it was hostile to football. The entire time there was plunging for fouls and afterward, they consumed a huge chunk of time to take them. The ref didn’t make all the difference for the game. The technique was to separate the play. “
