Brazil coach Tite shrugs off Fabinho dig from Liverpool boss Klopp

Brazil coach Tite has shrugged off a dig from Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp over Fabinho.

Klopp had a little dig at Brazil boss Tite after Liverpool's Champions League win over Midtjylland, criticising Fabinho's lack of game-time for the national team.

When Tite has been asked about Klopp's comments and responded.

He said, "Klopp and I have the same thinking and the same scale of values. The health of athletes is essential. It is human.

"The use is secondary, just as sport is secondary when we talk about health, when we talk about people, when we talk about something that is bigger. We have this same idea and way of watching football."
