Zapping Our Mondial EXCLUDED: Arkadiusz Milik’s “Little Brother” interview!
Tite was the object of many desires. The Brazilian coach is in full preparation for the next World Cup in Qatar, where his players want to win their sixth star. At the head of the team since June 2016, Tite could have taken a different path. Indeed, the 61-year-old coach revealed in an interview with Guardian having received many offers since the beginning of his mandate.
In particular during the summer of 2018, before the World Cup in Russia: “Just before the World Cup, Madrid told me they wanted to talk to me and I said ‘No, I’m not talking, don’t come near’. I want to be at peace with myself and with my work. I rise to my best level. When you do something in parallel, you’re not at your maximum and I can’t do it. Before the Russian World Cup, I received offers from Real Madrid, PSG and Sporting. But I didn’t want that. I want to win the World Cup. After the World Cup, I will decide my future”. Finally, Paris Saint-Germain bet on Thomas Tuchel to succeed Unai Emery during this off-season
Asked about the best player in his team between Neymar and Vinicius, Tite praised the merits of the PSG star: « Neymar is Neymar. He remains our biggest star. The difference now is that his outbursts are diluted by other stars who can also shine. The greatness of Neymar is that he understands this – about the progression of these young players. He encourages the boys to go up a level. Time and experience have given him this maturity ».
