"Many people talk about soccer in Brazil, but they don't know anything..."
Dani Alves never minces his words when he has to speak to the media. The right-back talked before the qualy match between Brazil and Peru for the 2018 World Cup; he had not problems to criticize some sectors around the canarinha.
Criticism to Brazil's media and fans
"Brazilian people criticize us all the time but they don't look at the bad things they do every day."
"Brazilian people only care about creating problems instead of showing us support like all fans in other countries do."
"Our country is very critical and little patient. People here are over demanding and always like to criticize everything."
"These days people speak as if it were easy to play football. Even people who used to play, they know how hard it is to make a pass or score a goal."
Comparison between Barcelona and Brazil
"In FC Barcelona there's a philosophy and a game idea inexistent in Brazil. We don't have many time to play together and the player's profile is different."
"He is happy to be one of the keystones, he is always calm."
"We have a very nice history, but if we don't put it into practice every day, there will be another history. We have to achieve other national teams to respect us doing great performances."
