[Dunga was asked to compare the pressure on his team in Chile with that of the side he captained to win the 1994 World Cup, Brazil’s first triumph in 24 years] Everything we did was bad [referring to criticism of his 1994 squad] I even think I am an Afro-descendant because I get hit so much. People look at me and think: ‘I’ll have a go at him’

[The comments provoked anger on social media, with some calling them racist while others said they acknowledged reality. Dunga later said in a statement published on the website of the Brazilian Football Confederation] I want to apologise to all those who could have felt offended with my comment about Afro-descendants. The way I expressed myself does not reflect my feelings or opinions

[Dunga says Neymar should go where he is happiest] It’s important that he chooses where he’s going to be happy, where he will enjoy playing. People don’t understand that the Brazilian player is different from the European one. We like to play, to have fun, otherwise we get tense, sad … I hope that next season he can give us a lot of joy and demonstrate his full potential. It’s up to him. He has many qualities, technical quality. He does everything a player needs to do and has matured a lot. He wins fouls now and he likes more to score, and not only to dribble. I think he’s in a good moment

[Dunga says AC Milan can’t expect 22-year-old Lucas Paqueta to solve their problems on his own] He immediately showed his value in Brazil with Flamengo and was brought to Italy. Everyone is expecting him to solve Milan’s problems. If he finds a team who is ready, he is a completely different player. He still needs to grow and understand how he can express himself in the best way. I think he could be a midfielder in the style of Nicola Berti
