The 30 years old Brazilian defender of PSG, Thiago Silva was stripped from the captaincy armband of Brazil as Neymar became the new captain of the country a few weeks ago but this has started a series of questions as if the player of Barcelona is truly capable of turning into the captain and the leader of his nation.
Not everyone agrees with the decision that was made by the Brazilian coach Dunga. Neymar is a player that consistently has received criticism due to his dramatic acting in the pitch as a simple touch can lead to Neymar being launched into the grounds with hopes that a penalty or foul is awarded to his team, this is something that has occurred in the past with Barcelona and his other clubs.
There is however, something that has affected Thiago Silva and it’s the fact that he wasn’t alerted by neither the coach of his teammate that he was no longer going to be the captain of Brazilian.
“They never came to talk to me. I never spoke to anyone; it was done without any conversation. That’s what upsets me. I would be lying if I said it didn’t annoy me. It feels like something was taken away from me that was mine. It’s painful and makes me sad.”’’ The Brazilian defender Thiago Silva said as he revealed details concerning the change of captains in the Brazilian national football team, the defender was never told or notified about the captaincy switch.
Dunga turned a 22 year old into the captain of a nation, a player that has natural born talent but is he really the appropriate decision to guide a country through their upcoming international tournaments and matches is a question that remains unanswered
